Am I doing the right thing?

Today was the last day of school for Alicia, Katie and Garrett. Next year they will be all mine! I am so excited about that but scared, too. I know there are a ton of families who home school all their kids and I have done it, too..for 2 years. However, the last 2 years Alicia and Katie have gone to public school and Garrett went to ps this year. They did great in school. Alicia is a little scholar and got all A's and awards in every subject. She also scored super high on her IBS tests. Katie has improved so much. She is reading and writing well and is still a science brain. I had a hard time with Katie for Kindergarten and I am nervous. I know that it is the right thing for us. God wants unified families...families that are together and growing spiritually. Only through the grace of God can I do that. I pray I don't try to do things with my own strength...I will fall flat on my face. It has happened before! I have gotten so burned out that I didn't think I could continue. I want the Lord to be first in my children's lives...everything else is nothingness. If they don't know Him they have nothing. This world is started rotting away as soon as Adam and Eve sinned. I want to focus on relationships...first God and then our family. That is why I am bringing them home.

Please continue to pray for my Grandma. She is still under hospice care but may be released into my Aunt's home and they (hospice) will take care of her there.
