WHAT HAVE I DONE???



This is me for the last two days. I have been out of the educational field for 10 years and I am completely overwhelmed. I know I need to take it nice and slow, but my kids want to start right away and full force. What happened to kids wanting summer to last forever? Not mine, no way. I just received most of my materials this weekend, so I am busy writing lesson plans for the week. I am a little rusty, and I'm trying to get familiar with the curriculums I've chosen. I finished with Annie's week of plans, and I'm halfway into Seth's. I guess my freedom and blogging will have to be on hold for a while. I'm excited, nervous, happy, and sad all at the same time. I guess these are all normal feelings. I feel so blessed to be with my children, but at the same time this is a huge adjustment for me. I wish I didn't have my house on the market at the same time, but if I can handle all this...what else can I do with God's help?

Stay tuned for my review of our first day of school...

You sound much the way my dear friend Mary sounded about three years ago when her two girls decided they very much wanted to be home schooled. She was overwhelmed at first, but they have done well and are really enjoying it. I know you'll get right back into the swing of it Susie. I begin to think that the Lord is calling all of us to sort of put blogging in its proper place. I may be wrong, but so many women have said that they are finding less time for it. Maybe we just needed to get some balance.
Goodness...I'm off on a tangent. I pray this will be a blessed time for you and the kids. And that while you're busy with school the Lord will just go ahead and send a buyer for your house.

You can do it and you will conqure the world. All of you!! Just remember to find humor in your day. Laugh as hard as you can. That should be part of the school day. "It's belly laugh time!!!" Remember teachers take breaks to.
Good luck and can't wait to hear how the first day turns out.

I bet it will only take a week for you to turn into a pro again! Hopefully you will still be able to blog often because I really enjoy reading your entries!

I'm so inspired by your homeschooling decision, and I can't wait to hear how it goes. You've helped me to reconsider my long-range homeschool plans.

How exciting Susie! You'll be awesome! I can't wait to hear some great stories! You have to keep us posted. You encourage us more than you'll ever know!

You will do just fine, Susie, once you get over the overwhelmed first couple of weeks. You'll find your groove. You can do all things through Christ who strengthens you!

You'll do just fine, Susie!!! God is stretching you, but that, I believe, if because of His trust in you and His future plans for you.
