I’ve been thinking a lot about my life and how much it has changed since 1998. In 1998, I was headed to college to become a teacher. I found out how little I could discipline kids due to “hurting their feelings.” I decided that teaching was not the life for me. Now, that I’ve tried putting my kids in several different schools and seeing first hand what teaching life is really like now a days, I’m so glad that I didn’t stick with that route.
Now, I’m a full time mom. I’m about to embark on home schooling both of my boys. We are in the process of changing my oldest back to the home schooling program, Connections Academy. This will be the first year for my five year old for him to actually be required to turn in work, but he’s excited. Both of my boys are sensetive kids and they also like to learn. They can’t stand being distracted from the chance to learn. We’ve installed in them the knowledge that “education equals power.” I don’t want them to ever lose that!! So, that means, that I’ll be juggling three kids and life in general all the time again, but it will be worth it.
I don’t want my life to change from me being there for my kids. I value my husband and praise God that he kept putting us back together like he has over the past almost 20 years. I can’t believe that over half of my life my husband has been a part of it.
I once inspired to be a big time Manager, but now I’m quite happy being a Mom!! Since God made it clear where my place is, I’m going to follow through. 🙂 Bloggers come join the fun of writing a five minute blog post based off one word. 🙂
