It has been on my mind for sometime about Megan's schooling. Would she be home schooled or sent off to school? I was pulling for homeschooling, but things just weren't leading down that path. With babysitting I just wasn't able to make the commitment that I needed to. Of course that wasn't the only concern.
My parents brought up schooling on Friday and asked if we were interested in sending Meg to a preschool program at a Christian school. I laid out all of the reason why I didn't think we could. They then laid out all of the reasons that we should.
Chuck and I decided that it was best to go ahead and send her to school. I know how wonderful the program is because two of my nieces went to this school. They use the A Beka curriculum which is something that I had been looking at.
Yesterday I went to do a walk through with the principal. Megan was a little shy at first, but then she warmed up. She finally let go of me and was talking with the principal. She even gave her a hug before we left. How wonderful it was to see that from my separation anxious child!
I keep telling myself that it only for three mornings a week. As I told a friend of mine it isn't about what I want, it is about what is best for Megan. Oh yeah, and also learning that I am not in control!
