oh I agree with Rachael and Jenny! I decided for myself that homeschooling wasn't going to work, even though I live far enough to make commuting a pain, and the idea of putting them on the bus terrifying.  But, I need that time without them, and they need it away from me. I will be watching and routing for your #boldbrilliantbeautiful self!!

Thank you Kelley! It was a hard decision, but sometimes we have to give things up to go further and live life more fully.
