What We’re Up To
My kids are very different. I could tell in utero. If you’re a mom, you know what I’m talking about. The older our children have grown, the more we have seen their personalities develop. The more we have seen their personalities develop, the more we have tried to tailor our parenting styles to fit each personality. Some of you may be laughing, now, because you realize how comical this is; Chris and I are exhausting ourselves just trying to remember who hates mayonnaise and who prefers an encouraging word over a hug. But, the real strain comes in dealing with discipline, emotions, education and the like.
For now, let’s focus on education. In “researching” our children, we’ve learned they need to be educated differently. Starting in January, I’m going to home school Abby. We’ve spent months, even years, watching and praying to reach this decision. Friends and family have engaged us in these conversations. They have prayed for us, suggested resources, shared curriculum, even helped beautify our “classroom.” The Lord verifying each step has been our encouragement.
We are excited and think Abby will thrive in her new setting. I look forward to sharing more details about our adventure and what led to our decision. Please be watching for pictures of our classroom, what we’re studying, our good days, our bad days, perhaps, and more.
