A day before we left. Sara Shared with us that she had been thinking about being home schooled.
she thought it would be a great idea for her.
She will be entering 9th grade.
(in 2 weeks)
oh boy. part of me was yelling HAPPY HAPPY HAPPY.
while part of me was saying... OH NO this kids smarter then I am .... How will I teach her.
Oh that devil he tells us lies. doesn't he.....
but rest assured... I spoke to a good friend that home schools her 4 girls
(1 in high school)
and I am confident.
I. CAN. DO. THIS.
I love that this girl of ours wants to be HOME.
Home to build Character. Morals. Christian Values.
I love that at such a vulnerable time in her life when
most 14 year olds want nothing to do with their parents,
well, mine does.
Man I am welling up inside.
I am so happy and feel incredibly blessed that I
will get to nurture and shape her just a little longer.
You see as I am writing these words
God is making me think about some things.
Sara was only about 2 when I had to go to work full time
crazy hours. 40 plus a week.
My sister watched her.
What a BLESSING that was and still is.
But I missed out.
I have always felt that I missed out.
and now God is granting me this extra time with my little girl
while she is growing into a incredible young lady.
I can't be more excited.
I can't even begin to tell you all that this means to me.
Especially at the season in my life
where so many changes have been happening
in our lives / family / work
Sara, she makes me smile. And laugh, and think.
She makes me twitchy with her love for MATH.
she makes me sing praises for the gifts that GOd has given her.
and she is humble what a beautiful quality.
It is going to be an exciting and wonderful journey we are about to begin in
a short few weeks. A journey that is going to be hard at times and lovely at times.
I can not wait.
