Remember this post from last month? Well, the decision has been made.
Dave and I prayed and talked. I wrung my hands and worried and vacillated. One day this was the best thing to do, the next day that was the better choice.
Sir D was kind and understanding and had many encouraging words for me, like “Oh, good grief! Just make a decision already!”
That may seem harsh but I do have a bit of a tendency to over think things just a bit.
I will not be teaching at co op next year. To most of you this is not life altering. But it was a hard decision for me. By teaching I can easily afford to pay for my kids classes. If I don’t teach I have to be very careful about how many classes I sign the kids up for and they don’t get to take some of the classes they want.
But the thing is, I like teaching my book club classes. I LOVE picture books in particular and children’s literature in general. But the reality is, it was taking too much time away from my own family and homeschool.
With Sir D working so much lately at the new job and one going off to Community College in the fall, well, I just feel like my focus needs to be at home.
I told the director yesterday and someone else is going to take over my classes. I am equal parts relived and sad. But now that the decision is made I feel a bit more peaceful.
So there you go, I know you were all waiting with baited breath to find out what was going on in my little world.
