I'm reflecting to the fact I am leaving Sequoia to plant our own church. In the same time I have the feeling that I am leaving my homeschooling family as well... You see there is about 10 families at Sequoia who are homeschooling. Mind you, we don't get together often or I don't get invited much probably because my kids are much younger than the rest... but still they encouraged me and they willingly answered my numerous questions when I was in the considering mode.
Still I have one or two I can asked questions when I need... Believe me it's a weird feeling - being sad to not see them anymore even though we didn't spoke that much except for Sundays. It's so bizarre... I guess deep down I wish we could be closer.
On another note, I am having problems with the type of discussions I hear when I go to Gymnastics. Why in the world christians homeschooling people have to talk about others who are not in their presence - it's beyond my understanding... I call it boderline gossip. The other week, I was listening them complaining about the fact their husbands were not doing everything they do when they are away. I think we should be fortunate that our kids are in good hands... Who cares if the dishes are still on the counter? Really this is a minor issue. My husband is not perfect but I know he is taking care of my kids... Besides the bible is very clear about uplifting your husband not putting him down. So this week, I decided to bring my own homeschool work (LOL I've found this French book that is stretching my vocabulary and my grammatical reasoning... very challenging!) and did that after I fed Jasmine. I didn't feel like being part of the discussion... I did heard bits and pieces but I kind of let it go. I didn't want to be frustrated again this week. I think it was wise from my part.
