Rethinking Priorities

I've been struggling to find the words for this post. If you've followed my blog you've realized that I haven't been actively blogging in a very long time. Over the last few years we have dealt with some major health issues in my family. Thankfully God has been good. Health has been restored and I now have the time to return to a my blog.

Over the last year I really struggled with my priorities. I realized that work was squeezing out everything else. My time and energy went to school first. My students deserved no less than my best, but I also found that by the end of the day I didn't have as much time and energy left for my family. So, I made the decision to leave teaching, focus on my family, and get back to blogging and focus on working from home.

My oldest daughter wanted to be able to spend more time with me. My husband, my daughter, and I spent a lot of time talking about what to do with her since she had been commuting to the school where I taught with me. We thought about sending her to our neighborhood school, but ultimately we decided to try homeschooling. So far it's been a blast.

So, there it is. That's what's been going on and why I've been MIA for what seems like forever. I will be posting again soon and sharing some of the activities that I've been doing with my girls.
