I've struggled with the decision to home school or not to home school this past year. I would pray every night for God to show me what I needed to do. Around February Connor started showing signs of anxiety when I would drop him off at preschool. He was nervous doing his school work and he didn't want to stay at preschool. He loved his teacher and all the kids in his class but I just knew something was wrong. I asked him every day if a kid was making fun of him or what was happening at school to make him so nervous. Dropping him off at school broke my heart. There were some days I would get back in my car and just cry because my baby was hurting and I didn't know how to help him. Thank God for a friend that has a daughter with anxiety, she helped me through those moments more than she will ever know. Trust me, I got advice from people who had no clue what they were talking about..."just whoop it out'em" has to be my favorite. Seriously, I bit my tongue and walked away after that one.
The homeschooling material arrived today and we will start school next week. Connor was so excited! I hope to blog my homeschooling journey because there are so many misconceptions about homeschooling. With this said...let the journey begin! :)
