I cried the day I pulled away from the office parking lot and headed to my in-laws house for our final night before our move. I had just driven away from ten years of my life and I had no idea what the future would hold. (Perhaps if someone had told me, I would have turned around at that moment and begged for my job back, but the not knowing was a blessing. )
From the moment C had been put into my arms all those years ago, my dream had been to be a stay at home mom and now I have been one for a year. 365 days of being by kids’ sides as they grow, learn, and explore. I often get asked how I enjoyed my first year at home and of homeschooling, and to be honest I can’t process it away from the chaos and uncertainty we lived through during the fall and winter. In many ways, we stunted there… and yet in more ways we have thrived!
I’m so incredibly thankful for this past year. I have grown in so many ways and I can’t wait to experience what this next year holds!
Happy “Dream Come True” anniversary to me!
