You guys, we have a little girl who is stressing. She’s worrying because she’s heading to school soon.
You may be scratching your head and thinking, “but I thought you were homeschooling?!”
Rest assured, we are. In addition to learning at home, our daughter will be spending two days each week doing enrichment activities with other kids at a school just for homeschoolers.
Imagine an entire community of kids in the same situation, with the support of teachers who get it.
Plus it’s free! Plus she loves her teacher!
Our little worry-wort is soooo excited, but concerned too. “I don’t want to be apart from you, mama. I don’t want to be lonely.” We know that our daughter makes friends wherever she goes, so we’re not concerned, but she’s feeling less secure.
And we totally understand. New things can be scary. Sometimes when we’re worried we cry at the drop of the hat or feel quick to anger. But we also know that to grow we sometimes need to push ourselves outside of our comfort zone. So here we are, David and I, loving and supporting our sweet overwhelmed girl, giving her extra hugs and cuddles, being her safety net, because we’re embarking on something new. And it’s time.
It’s going to be freaking awesome.
