Not Back to School Day

Yesterday was the first day of public school. As I saw the children running to the bus stop with their new backpacks and lunch bags, I began to second guess my decision to home school. Am I doing the right thing?
Then we got reading to go to a not back to school picnic at the park with a bunch of other home schoolers. It was reassuring to know so many others have made the same decision. I felt sane. Before we even enter the playground fence my girls made a new best friend. I saw some familiar faces of people that I didn't even know home schooled. I walked away feeling empowered and inspired.
As for our true back to school day. I have decided to start on August 31. I am spending today organizing and scheduling.
