Decisions, decisions

Last year in February, I made a decision. It was hard, but I felt that it was the right decision at the time. For my family. Was it wrong? Was it right? I don't know.

I learned a lot. About me. About my children. About my strengths. About my weaknesses. About what I am made of.

While it has been on my mind for a while, I haven't shared with anyone my thoughts or feelings. Until it became so overwhelming I thought I might just burst.

In the end, what it all boils down to is...I am NOT going to continue homeschooling my children.

I am sad that I wasn't able to do it long tem, but have a feeling of relief, a load has been taken off my chest.

I admire those Moms who homeschool and the work that it requires. I am just not one of them.

Boy this Mom thing is rough... I really, really do need a manual! So if anyone comes up with a parenting/mother hand book, let me know. Although I need it specific to my kids, so that keep in mind!

Don't feel bad or guilty. I planned on homeschooling our children but when it came down to it - I just knew I couldn't do it. My son is in kindergarten in a charter school and is thriving! I couldn't ask for a better experience. ((hugs))

I am totally in awe of you. Since I met you, you have helped me in so many ways. At the time homeschooling was the best decision for your kids. Circumstances have changed and that's ok!
