All In!

Who knew? Someone must have known. Was it you? 'Cuz it sure wasn't me!

Homeschooling? Moi? It surely couldn't be. Am I mistaken, or was it just yesterday that I wrote we were thinking (key word being "thinking") about homeschooling?

Hmm...something fishy is going on here. And I think the Lord has something to do with it.

Here I was, casually considering bringing my brood in from public school; figuring I have, oh, at least a few weeks or months until I need to make a decision. And that's true. I mean, there really is no hurry. There's no one pounding on my door telling me to get those kids outta that school. But, strangely (or not?) I laid my fleece before the Lord and barely before I had time to open my eyes from that prayer, He's taken that fleece and flung it over my shoulders.

"Take away any of our hesitations," I say. And what does He do? Well, friends, He takes away our hesitations. And not only that, but today, while at Bible study, the Lord plants in my path 5 different women who are currently homeschooling. I picked their brains like nothing else. (Do I still have stuff in my teeth?)

It's amazing. I mean, really. It's honestly like the Lord has just completely taken over here. Which, I suppose, is a good thing.

So, as I write, I am copying immunization records, birth certificates and my will (just in case I don't make it through). And soon, very soon, I will be a homeschooling mom.

I may have added some extra prayers for you all last night. He He He! Welcome! Welcome! Now seriously…if you want to email me off post, I am willing to give you my home phone number and will be available to you 24hrs per day to answer questions, bounce around ideas or pull out eye lashes together. LOL! Our state laws are different, but the dreams are the same and I wish that I would have had more support at the beginning of my journey.

This sounds a lot like how it went with my family's decision to adopt :-) congrats.

Good luck homeschooling. Two of my sisters have done that with several of their children and it's a lot of work but I'm sure rewarding. We too have adopted - a little girl from Ethiopia. Talk about rewarding! Best of luck to you on your homeschooling efforts. :-)

Thank you gals! And :)De, I may just take you up on your offer! Thank you!

I found your blog after your adoption story was featured on Design Mom......We have been praying over fostering/adoption. My husband and I have three boys (7, 4, 2) and we live in the Sacramento area so i was thrilled to find your blog. It seems after today that we have even more in common.... We homeschool and love it! I look forward to following your journey and thank you for all the experiences that you share here!
