How can I express myself in a coherent way about my thought process in making one of the most difficult decisions I have ever made? I will say I have praying a lot over this decision and asking the Lord to show me the way.
I have a big announcement, one that may shock you, one that may have you shaking your head in bewilderment. I have decided to enroll my six year old in public school for first grade this fall.
Yes, I have bought all the home schooling books, yes I have send the letter of intent to our local school district, yes I have painstakingly constructed her curriculum, and even designed daily lesson plans.
Several things have happened over the past few weeks which have caused me to change our educational plans for Ladybug.
I have been offered two options to earn money. Since January, we have been without dental and vision insurance. At the time, our health insurance coverage changed, and we no longer had access to employer sponsored insurance. Please note we follow a strict budget and do not use credit anymore. This gap in our coverage has been keeping me up at night, and I have been praying that God would show me a way on how to afford this insurance on our monthly budget. With Bumblebee needing eye glasses, and Ladybug on the verge of getting her adult teeth, I feel God offered me solution that would pay for these two additional bills. However, there is a catch, and of course, it is time, but not only time but energy. Both of these options wonderful opportunities, and I am very excited about them. But I was left wondering how I would be able to juggle these new responsibilities while home schooling my two daughters.
