A Prayer Answered




I have some wonderful news. I don't even know how I have kept it to myself for a week (no, I'm not expecting ;)

If any of you have read my www.homeschooling6.com blog you might remember that I have posted more than once about not being able to homeschool the children through high school. Well, Lupe, said that the children will be home educated through grade 12. I'm so happy. It has been a prayer of mine for years.

When we first started homeschooling it was only going to be for Kindergarten and maybe a few years after. The schools where we lived before were on a scale from 1-10 where a 2 from a real poll.

When we moved to Texas, Lupe made sure we were walking distance to one of the best schools. For four years we lived right across the street from one of the top 10 school in Texas. Josh at the time had started 1st grade and it was already the middle of the year when we moved, so Lupe, said we can finish the year off at home.

He would have liked for the children to attend school the next year but he let me homeschool for another year. After that we were taking it year-by-year.
When Josh, was in 4th grade, Lupe, said that I can homeschool the children until their 6th grade year. He wanted them in public school sometime before high school. Most likely from 7th grade on up.

I prayed for God to either change my husbands heart and let us continue homeschooling or to change my heart and give me peace about sending the children off to public school.

Homeschooling year-by-year was hard for me and put a lot of pressure on me. Homeschooling is so different from public school. I felt that the children had to be at public school grade level. This is one of the reason why I was so unsure of myself and constantly curriculum hoping. Of course my Sweets didn't mean to make me feel this way. I believe part of it was my fault. When Josh, was going to be in 1st grade, I went a head without consulting Lupe, and purchased his first grade year. I am ashamed to admit that I did this behind his back, knowing that he would let me if the curriculum we paid for it already. I'm sure Lupe, was going to let me homeschool (we still lived near the not-so-great school) but I was wrong in the way I went about it.

Lupe, has been supportive through out our homeschooling years. He has listened and been there for me. Even though at the time he was not 100% sure about homeschooling at the time.

For those of you who have been praying right along with me. I'm here to say the prayer has been answered. Thank you.

  3. Duh, I meant highschoolers! LOL! :) Highschool wasn't as nearly as intimidating as I had thought it would have been. :) Two down, two more to go. :)
