It's really tough to KNOW what to do when life becomes different and it makes changes in us...I have just undergone such changes~and I AM DIFFERENT NOW...oh I'm still encapsulated in this same ole body and my thoughts and values haven't changed, but in my focus, I have moved, changed, rearranged somewhat...and my little effort here has suddenly left me without participation. I no longer can participate. Not because I don't want to, but because I am no longer homeschooling my kids MYSELF, but we have moved into the total techno age and utilizing the K12 program in a 'virtual academy.' My kids are enrolled in the largest highschool in our state and with good reason. It pools students far and wide. My two are just that..but it's left me in a DIFFERENT focus and mindset. I am no longer as intimately involved~it's THEIR game now, much more so THAN EVER...and so what do I share with you? I've found this hard. Very hard. I have loved writing for you dear reader over these past several years promoting the ideals of a Christian home education and so honestly believed and still do that it's possible to go the whole nine yards~totally the 12 or 13 yrs if you want to count kindergarten and instill all that is necessary and valuable in our children..YES~I STILL believe...but since my kids are now in an online public school, homeschooling antics while there are still many, may not be as inspiring or interesting to some..or may seem like we've somehow divorced the ranks of the homeschooled OR we might just be seen as more odd than others. But for whatever the issues, for me I am not inspired often to share about our current processes~even though I am no less proud. I'm just not sure that you care...kwim?? So with that, I have realized I have some choices concerning this newfound life I have~I can either leave this blog and all of you or I can refocus on another aspect of life~my life...and I DO have a life...LOL..that mothering and homeschooling didn't take it all or consume me entirely...so I believe I will begin today to put homeschooling in a good and solid place here in my blog much as I have done in my own life~in the past with all the grand experiences and memories...and move into my present and share..share..share...WHAT life is like...now and in the future of life...as a wife, mother...daughter...woman...Christian...There's a CHANGE going on here...in the next little bit~you will see...ME...differenly...but I am ...and don't blink..LOL, b/c it's likely to change again in a flash! B/C (I can!) LOL...No, seriously, I am excited about a refocus of SisterTipster and will be incorporating many facets into one ideal..right here, with you!
Have a beautiful day in the Lord!
