Faith Vs Fear...
I heard a great reference in a seminar I attended that so many people let "fear" guide their emotions and that we need to look to the opposite of fear which is "FAITH". I believe that is so true and keep telling myself that. This week is the last week of school for my kiddos and it comes with mixed emotions. Taylor is most likely going to be homeschooled next year and although I know it will be great for her - I still have that sick feeling in the pit of my stomach like, "What am I doing?"... But then I go to my support system (and it is big and wonderful out here) and know I am doing the right thing. I think the biggest thing I can do is to go to my BIGGEST support which is God, right? I really like some of the ladies in Taylor's class and it makes it hard saying goodbye. Okay, I guess enough on that pity party right? Just having one of those emotional days.
I have to say though, I am VERY excited to start this journey. I think the best thing is Taylor wants to be homeschooled. We have been at it part time this year and she has loved it. Aiden, well he is just happy go lucky right now. I can hardly believe that my kiddos will be going to my mother in laws for two weeks. I am going to be going crazy, but I guess I will put that time to good use. I went to some friends houses that homeschool to get ideas of what works for them in terms of their classroom setups - so I am hoping I make some headway in that department. I want to make it fun for all of us. I think to have a child have a love for learning you have to make it fun. Taylor is so into science experiments... so I think I may get out all of those things and have a timeline of doing this and that... I am so looking forward to turning tadpoles into frogs (NOT REALLY)... but hey she loves animals!
