Eli's Preschool Graduation

My sweet little Eli graduated from Preschool this Spring. It is so sad in a way. He really is growing up. But I was very proud of myself. I only teared up a couple of times and didn't totally lose it at his graduation. Now, I look forward to starting the school year with him this Fall. Ryan and I have made a huge decision. We felt like God was calling us to homeschool our kids and we have decided to do that. This coming from someone who swore I would NEVER homeschool my kids. It is amazing how God can change your mind and your way of thinking. I can not tell you the weight that was lifted off the second we decided. We had complete peace and knew without a doubt that we were doing exactly what God has called our family to do. How exciting! And scary! But I know that if God has called me to do this that he is also going to equip me. So, I have comfort in that. Thank you God.
