I am officially limiting myself.
I “flipped a coin” (it wasn’t a literal coin, I was driving) and– as I’ve noticed in the past– found while it was in the air what it was I really wanted.
- Storytelling is on-hold. Maybe for a decade. Lord willing, I will eventually return.
- Piano is on-hold. I am tired of not moving forward as efficiently as I could in any instrument. I will be enjoying the beautiful Rainsong Jay picked out for me just after Elisha was born.
Jay and I have always known we wanted to homeschool our children, and Natasha is definitely ready and willing to learn new skills. So this conscious limiting is directly tied to the research and preparations I have begun in order to lay the groundwork for her schooling.
It is not so much the schooling that I see as the challenge, but maintaining a smoothly-running household at the same time. I have come across some very nice resources.
If you think you can homeschool, I say go for it. Find out about resources in your area because it will help you not feel so isolated. Plus they will know where you and your children can co-op with other parents.
I researched this pretty thoroughly and decided that homeschooling was not for me. Keep in touch–

Oooh…I will be using that preschoolers and homeschooling link in the near future!
