It is Finished
The day Randy first mentioned 'homeschooling' to me is indelibly seared into my brain. We were engaged and were returning from a date one night when he began to wax philosophical and prophetic about our future life together. When he said, "And we will homeschool our children..." I scooted very far over to the passenger side door and considered jumping out. No, really.
"What?!?" I said, none too gently. I think he was surprised at my reaction. I began to wonder what kind of crazy man I had gotten myself engaged to. How was I going to get out of this? The invitations were already in the mail. He very wisely refrained from saying anything else about it.
A ton of prayer and a few Bill Gothard seminars later, I finally felt the call. O.K, I'll do it. It's a good thing that faith and obedience don't include knowing the details sometimes because, well, jumping off a cliff might look better.
So when the time came, we began. My friends in Kirbyville will remember the little red apples taped to those giant windows in our house on Main Street...
