signing on the dotted line..

I'm sure this post will come as a surprise to some... a shock to others... and a point of contention for a few...

...today I signed on the dotted line...

...as of this morning, my son is now registered for school... 

...and it's all good.

As much as I have loved the time I have had with Eric at home, I am equally excited for the opportunities that he will have at school.  Football is his passion... and I simply haven't been able to find 21 other boys who are homeschooled to play football with him.  So, he will go to school on January 4 and be able to participate in football conditioning and track this spring and have an opportunity to get to know guys on the football team before summer practices... as well as have a semester to acclimate to a standard school environment.

Today, he and I went to the school and I signed on no less than a half of million dotted lines... 

...so that the boy I love the most could pursue his dream of football.


  1. Okay, I just have to ask what school he'll be attending. Will he go to Lakeview Middle School and then Warsaw High next year? I just might have connections with the track coach and know a few of the football coaches as well... Best of luck.

  2. I bet that was a big decision for your family. I pray that he has a smooth transition.

  3. What a good mother you are! I know it had to be difficult for you personally but you love your children enough to do what is best for them individually. Well done. Blessings as you all transition through this time.

    BTW, I love the new look of the blog!

  4. I know it wasn't an easy decision, but I'm sure you will all do well with the new situation.

  5. Oh I bet that was a hard decision to make! Even though I am a homeschool mom I am all for figuring out what works for your kid be it Home, Public or Private school!

  6. I agree with Heather, I'm sure it was a very difficult decision, came by through much prayer and sleepless nights. I know schooling is important, but in the great scheme of life, it is a small part of an entire lifetime. It'll be great! Change is good. I'm excited to hear how it goes! And to see those pics of him in his football uniform! :)


Thank you for your kind words!
