Making the decision to put the kids in "real" school

Leo and Elena started school last week!!!

We were so fortunate to find a small school where three Dominican sisters, in addition to a crew of amazing teachers, party with the kids all day. After coming off 2 years of homeschooling, I am so happy to have found a school that focuses on a well-rounded child, not test scores. The school is affordable because they make purchases based on need instead of keeping up with the latest trends in other schools. We don't have smart boards in the classrooms but we do have TONS of happy teachers and happy children.

Making the decision to put them in school was tough for me. Jason was very excited about this school because he works at Aquinas College with the Dominican Sisters. I was much less excited because I had agonized over the decision to homeschool the kids for so many reasons and I wasn't sure that a brick and mortar school would help me to achieve the goals I had.

At the time that I was trying to launch my business earlier this year, I realized that I just couldn't do it. I could either homeschool or earn money. Not both. And we needed to make a hard decision about where to place our priorities. At the same time that I was worrying non-stop about this big decision and figuring out whether or not to push my business to the next level, I was stressing myself to the max and I was not reaching any decision that gave me even one ounce of peace.

I finally made a bargain with God that I would do whatever he wanted me to do, just give me a sign large enough for me to read. Because I'm just not smart enough to spot the subtle hints.

Within 2 hours (TWO HOURS Y'ALL!!) I received a business telephone call from the ideal client looking to hire me!!!

Needless to say, I didn't need a whole lot more prodding. I felt immediate peace with the decision to move to Nashville, put the kids in a FANTASTIC school, start all over in a new town (soooo not my favorite thing to do) and grow my business.

It is time to hand a couple of the kids over to the professionals, trust in God and move forward.
