Safe and Warm in the Den
I've been spending hours at my daughter's school. I've decided to pull her out of traditional school after this Friday to begin our home schooling.
In order to ensure that her last few days at school were positive, I went along and crouched in the corner like a mother lion. Well, a mother lion who puts snacks in baggies and helps all the little cubs with their reading assignments. But that doesn't sound nearly as dramatic.
Her teachers care about the children, and they're doing their best. Group education just can't provide the benefits of the one-on-one tutoring I can give her.
I'm very excited about home schooling! And, more importantly, I feel a deep sense of peace and rightness about this decision--more equanimity than I've felt for at least a couple of months.
I hope all of you are having a good week and making decisions that lead to peace.
