I think spring fever (or something) has hit me full force. I had to get outside and eat lunch today because I felt like the walls were closing in around me. The day started with me being quite snippy and I think I can partly blame it on being forced to spend such a beautiful day indoors. All I wanted to do was go get my kiddos, grab a lemonade from the drug store, and head to the park.
Earlier in the week I was talking with a friend about someone she knew who was going to homeschool her children. I felt jealous. Yesterday I spoke with another mother who was homeschooling her son. Now that seed is planted. I asked Monkey if he'd like for me to be his teacher and he gave an enthusiastic, "Yes!" and said that a classmate doesn't come to school anymore because her mom is her teacher now. I have to say that I'd never dream of pulling him out now (he has the MOST amazing teacher), and probably not next year for certain reasons, but maybe the following year...maybe. The RedHead is definitely not sold on it.
All I can do is pray that we have the wisdom to make the right choices for our children and family, but homeschooling sure would have made it easier to ditch the four walls and head out into this beautiful weather today! :)
