After two years of talk, prayer, and hard work by everyone we registered for the 2012 school year. As of 8:05 am I kissed my oldest three kids and waved goodbye as they one by one entered their new classrooms. They barely waited for the kiss before they were off, making new friends, finding their seats, getting to know their teachers and settling in. It was as if they all said “Don’t worry Mom, I got this.” Simultaneously calming my nerves about how they would do and making me feel forgotten in an instant.
I am so proud of them, they are going to have an amazing year. I also know that even though I am no longer a home educator, Mike and I are still their primary educators as their parents. And being their Mom is the best “job” in the world I have had and will ever have.
