30 Days About ME-Day 30

30 DAYS ABOUT ME

DAY 30
A DREAM FOR THE FUTURE BEYOND THE NEXT YEAR

As I think ahead to my life only 5 years from now, I see something that is very different and frightening.  I will no longer have any children at home.  I will no longer be a home school mom.  That's a tough one!  Being a mom has been my breath for the past 24 years.....it will be very hard to move beyond that.  I know, I will always BE a mom, but as the children grow, move out, move on....my role changes drastically.  This is a change that I am very slowly adjusting to.  It is a painful one.  Many women have done it and lived through it, I expect I will too!

So what are my "plans" when that day comes?  Well, I am very much looking forward to grandchildren :)  I expect that will be a most wonderful experience!

I have also been considering going back to school and getting my degree in Education.  Not so that I can go out and get a job, but so that I can be an advocate for home schoolers.  Here in VT where I live a degree would be necessary to do what I have in mind.  That is also a very scary idea :)  I'm not so sure I could be successful....but I think I should really give it a try.  I've been considering this for a while now, but haven't looked into it.....I have 5 years, guess I'd better get started :)

  1. Sounds like a wonderful thing to pursue with your education to help other home schoolers down the road!! I'm sure with your years of experience with home schooling, you would make a wonderful advocate in whatever role you wished to take. It is hard to let the kids grow up and not have them at home any more (or if they end up back at home because of the economy, like my son is currently living with us) to step out of "active mom" responsibilities, but I have to say I am enjoying my adult son a lot more these days (than say his wild teenage years :)

    have a great Tuesday!

    Betty: I don't think my children will EVER move back home.
    Lisa: It took me a month to decide to actually do this. Figured November would be a good month as it has 30 days :)
