Two years ago the Lord began to stir our hearts about bringing the kids home for school. He planted that seed and it has rested quietly, waiting for the right season to grow into an everyday part of our lives. We have had questions and doubts and fears. We feel inadequate. We will be misunderstood. It has taken some time for us to see how it can be done right and well. We don't regret the years that the kids have spent going to school away from home, in fact we treasure the lessons learned and the memories made. All of that is foundational up to this point. Before now, school at home was an idea.. even an ideal, now it is a desire and a vision. We are stepping out into the unknown but we have faith that He will lead us each step of the way in wisdom and grace. He always has and always will.
So, how did the kids react?
Ben, "That means I can hug my teacher anytime I want to."
AbbySue, "Can I stay up later to read now and go to school in my pj's?"
Zibby, "Yay!"....just because everyone else was saying "Yay!"
