I am a mother, friend, teacher, wife, and country girl all wraped up in one. Can I do it all?

So I officially did It, yep I am crazy. I am feeling completely unprepared and slightly uneasy about my decision. I mean I am not teacher material. Preschool is fun and easy, loved it in fact but home school?

I have tossed around the idea for years now, and always came up with the same answer. Leave it with the professionals, they know best. But do they?

So one week from school and I am getting extremely antsy. My last one leaving the nest.
But it is not just that.
 It is the fact that I can't stand my kids being taught things I truly disagree with.

 I feel like  every thing I teach at home then gets undone at school. The teachers are great at our local school and I love the diversity, I just want a little more involvement. I want my faith to be part of their school life too.
well I guess I got my wish, today after our family praying about it and pondering it for a whole, like, registered.
Then I went and got a peek at the real live home school curriculum.
Insecurities are swirling through my mind and I am not 100 % sure I have done the right thing, I mean what if I wreck them for life, what if I have denied them from getting a good education, this is serious stuff friends!

So here I am confessing to you I don't know if I really did the right thing, but time will tell and funny thing is the children seem very on board with the concept.

 I will do my best. Guess that's all a mom can do in the end right?
So if you think of me pray for me, pray that God grants me the wisdom and patience to pull this off.

I am off to a grand new adventure that is sure to stretch and grow me in new ways!

Deuteronomy 6:6-7 

And these words that I command you today shall be on your heart. You shall teach them diligently to your children, and shall talk of them when you sit in your house, and when you walk by the way, and when you lie down, and when you rise.

  1. Sometimes it's hard to stand up for what we believe in. But God has impressed this upon your spirit, so cling to that and know that He will never leave you nor forsake you-even through the joys and trials (there will be trials;) of homeschooling. You have an amazing blog and I am officially a subscriber now...:)
