To say I've been busy is a gross understatement. I had a draft post in the cube that I was supposed to post last week but that never happened. So here I am at the end of the month just getting around to posting educational content.
Well we are preparing to leave temporary quarters for my permanent residence. With this move, my kids will be transitioning back to public school in a new district within the state. Gasp! There is a time and a season for everything under the sun. I am so very grateful for the 4 years I've had with my girls. It has been so essential for their academic, spiritual, and personal well being. I started this journey with Princess and I'm ending this journey with Princess. As a rising senior, she will remain dual enrolled at a local community college and will graduate as a homeschool student. This journey was mainly about her to begin with. My other girls came along for the ride.
Pumpkin does not want to go back to school but I know it is right for her at this time. To be held accountable by outside teachers is a good thing at this age. Some subjects have to be taught by others. If she wasn't going back, I would've found a co-op for Math and Science for her anyway. The school district we left had a fine set up allowing students to take 2 courses at the high school but there doesn't seem to be any other district in the state with those privileges. Furthermore, for these two younger students there is more they stand to gain by transitioning back to traditional school.
NuNu is most excited. She begged to come home as a rising 4th grader. Now she is begging to go back. She is socially starved. I realized with this student, it is best to get her acclimated to outside situations now while her dad & I still have an opportunity to teach and mold her before she leaves home at 18.
For what is going on in our lives at this juncture, this is the right path. I know God is able to keep all that I commit to his care. He is more than able to keep us and our children. I trust him to do just that.
I'm not sure if I'll have time to continue to blog. Perhaps I will do so until Princess graduates.
Here's to another new beginning.
