I was standing in line at a church dinner the other night. Jeff and Kaylee had already gotten their food. In order to distract a very energetic little boy I latched onto the first thing I could find--an airplane up in the sky. I asked Drew, "If you were a pilot and could fly anywhere in the world, where would you go?" Addy, who was right there as well says that she would fly to, "England! No, Paris! No, I know--Alaska!" Andrew thought about it for a few seconds and then replied that he would, "fly a rocket and 'Rocket to the Celestial Kingdom'". I had a "motherly moment" including the required heart fluttering and full-body sigh--ie. *Aawww* He does have his moments!

INSANITY:Insanity, craziness or madness is a spectrum of behaviors characterized by certain abnormal mental or behavioral patterns. Insanity may manifest as violations of societal norms, including becoming a danger to themselves and others...

I have gone and done it--------------gone off the deep end, that is.

I am now officially homeschooling my children!

Did I just say that out loud?

I guess that makes it official. No turning back now.

Why? you ask----------------------Well...

For a hundred and one reasons that I don't think I can even put into words.

Mostly because it just "feels" right.

Once I finally accepted the fact that this was indeed a definite lifestyle change, I realized that it was something I had been preparing for for a long time.

I'm not a patient person by nature. I am not even that good of a teacher. But for some crazy reason that only God knows, I KNOW that I CAN do this. I even find myself excited by the prospect.

I have researched curriculum and theories up the yang. I have agonized over whether or not to get involved with a state program. I have scheduled and organized until I am ready to pop! The decisions are all made and I am now ready to go. I figure the hard part is all done. Now I can just implement the plan and watch my little kiddlets bloom. (OH, if only it really were that easy!)

I'm quite aware that there will be some who won't understand how I could do that to my children--------------Oh how socially ignorant they will be.

I just have to rely on the inspiration that I felt! I guess TIME WILL TELL.
