Back to School -- For Me!

Okay, so I finally did it. I'm making the plunge. Last year I tried to go back to school but it was not going to work out. We were in the middle of closing on a house, a major move and my smallest was going from specialist to specialist to try and figure out just what was wrong with her leg. The timing was not right.

This year I got the all of the paperwork in on time, I bought all of my books and now I just wait for classes to start. It feels really strange. I'm so excited to do something for myself. I'm a little frightened but I know that my age, maturity and many years of wisdom LOL will play into my college success. I really want to do well (who doesn't) and be successful in my classes.

I am still homeschooling my oldest daughter, Monica. She is doing so well and she has no desire to go to public school for now. Thank God for that. I don't think she could handle the stress and peer pressure. Maybe she's stronger than I think she is right now but I don't want her to go through the stress of it all anyway. She would be bored out of her mind anyway. She's so far ahead of where the 5th graders are in this district. I just want her to be happy in her education because she's so intelligent. I don't want to waste anymore time with her. We are starting her on some programming languages in addition to her regular studies. She is very excited to have the additional challenge. It's a very exciting time!

Wow, good for you for going back to school! I have a far-off ambition to return to school some time as well. The time just hasn't been right at this point. We are a Christian family who has our 2 kids in a public school, so I am immersed in the PTA and the classroom so I that I can stay aware of what is going on in the public school setting. It has been a blessing to us so far (oldest in 6th grade and youngest in 5th grade) but middle school is coming up next year, so who knows?
