At the beginning of the summer, I went back into homeschooling my boys with the understanding that my husband insisted they go to school in the fall. I am tired of arguing, and the Lord had really convicted me about being submissive to my husband in everything. So, as we did school over the summer, I just prayed that the decision would be his and that I would be able to live with it. I didn’t hound him about it at the end of the summer. (He noticed that.) I registered them for school, very sad about it, but I did it.
Last night we had a talk about D1, and I knew that the time to speak up was right. We were discussing D1 and the challenges he faces all the time… being labeled as different… not having many friends… singled out… bullied (first grade, not this year so far), etc. I said “You know as well as I do that school is not in his best interest.” He said, “Yes, I know.” Then we agreed not to argue, and “just see how things go”. My heart is still to homeschool my kids. Now I just need to let the Lord work on my husband. Every night spent doing homework until bedtime serves to add a little more motivation toward that end, I am sure.
