Something on our Hearts..........
On Monday morning of this week, she said she was sick, so I went ahead and took her to the doctor. He (of course) said that he would put her on antibiotics but that she really didn't have anything. Great.......I then mentioned the stomach thing, letting him know that I was almost positive it was anxiety. He said......yeah we really don't have any diseases that are only Monday-Friday and not on school holidays. We kind of laughed and then he proceeded to ask her about her grades (which are wonderful) and her friends (of which she has many) and then frowning he asked her why she didn't want to go to school. This is a question that we've asked her many times. Always the same answer, I don't know, I just don't like it. I sent her to school on Tuesday and the school called me at 9 AM to pick her up because she was sick. She was still feeling under the weather, but she wasn't at death's door. Wednesday morning, didn't want to go to school. Cried and cried. I told her we had to figure something out. She burst out with I just don't want to go to school. I called her Daddy and that was pretty much the last straw. The Man and I told her if she'd just make it through Thursday and Friday she didn't have to go back. We've talked with her about it before and she was never ready. She always adamantly said she didn't want to be homeschooled. Wednesday she was ready, she didn't even want to finish Thursday and Friday. Today was the last day for her and she is so happy and relaxed that she hasn't stopped jabbering since she came home (after a few tears about leaving her friends that is) We've prayed and prayed, asking God to guide us and I'm certain that he has led us to homeschool her. I don't know what else to do, but I do know that what we are doing now isn't working.
I think it's going to be good! We have a plan in place and will start feeling our way next week. God is good and I'm thrilled to have my girl at home with me where she will be taught by someone who loves and understands her. With His guidance we will be directing her down the right path, the path to true knowledge and self sustainability, the path of a person who loves to learn and seeks out knowledge on her own. The Man and I have been homeschooling her in a fashion ever since she was born, she just attended public school as well. Now we will be able to teach her in every way, and she will not be pulled in two directions........the worldly direction, and our direction.
Till next time..............GOD BLESS FROM GOODWIFE FARM!
