Transitions


Last week I went to a Christian school open house. My son will be starting kindergarten this fall, and I have mixed feelings about it. I have been homeschooling for preschool, but my husband is not on board for homeschooling for K-12. So, I have been looking at Christian schools in my area to see what might be a good fit.

I liked the one last week, but wasn't totally impressed with it. After leaving the open house I felt so depressed. When we got home I kept looking at my precious little boy, and sadness overwhelmed me and I began to cry. He's still my baby, and I'm not ready to depart from him just yet.

This baby is coming at a great time, I suppose. Maybe I will be so engulfed in caring for a new baby, that it will ease the pain of my oldest entering kindergarten.

Maybe.

I have been homeschooling too. But, for a variety of reasons, I have been looking a school close to my home for my oldest two girls. My goal was to homeschool through at least 8th grade, so I am feeling a bit like a failure. On the other hand, I feel kind of relieved. Which, in turn makes me feel guilty...lol!

I feel sad about the idea of letting my "babies" out in the world alone (even though they will be 6 and 5 in the fall). Maybe a mother is never really ready for the school transition?

I feel you LaSandra! A part of me wants to continue homeschooling, but another part of me feels kind of relieved to let him go to school. But, I'm still sad about it. You're right, maybe mothers just aren't ready until it actually happens, and then you just adjust. . . I hope.:)
