You know how they say not to "cast your pearls before swine" well thats how I have felt about something lately that I've been hesitant to tell people about. Because for me its been a personal revelation something that I didn't take lightly and was a hard decision to make. I prayed and fasted and looked at all the options and things have fallen into place to let me know that this is what I should be doing for whatever reason and to be honest I don't even know what that reason is and may never know but if its what I'm supposed to do then I will try my hardest to do it. Okay so what is it I've decided to do its........ HOMESCHOOLING....there I said it I'm going to homeschool Kacey this year. I know your probably as shocked as I was that of all people I would homeschool...but I always told myself that as a mom I would do whatever it takes to make sure my kids have the best life possible.
I have lots of reasons....she will be learning more than she would at school in a shorter amount of time....she will have more free time to do more dancing or whatever else she wants to.....she won't have to change who she is to fit in with a certain crowd or be labled as a certain type of person.....she will be in control of her learning and not be limited by those around her.....we will be able to grow closer as mother and daughter....part of her curriculum will be studying the scriptures so she will grow spiritually....and many other reasons that I don't even know yet.
Yes, I'm worried... you always are when you do something new and unknown but there are so many homeschool groups and activities that she's not going to become a social outcast or freak and the curriculum I'm using goes by the highest standard of all 50 states and there is a teacher assigned to her to help her in anyway if I can't and they have field trips too. I'm just going to take it one year at a time and see how it goes but to tell you the truth I am so excited about spending time with her and getting to know her as she is growing up into a beautiful young lady, she is such an awsome girl, who wouldn't want to spend that much time with their daughter.
