We didn't go to kindergarten registration today, and I mentioned to Parker that we will be homeschooling. Now I'm starting to settle in to the decision. I need to feel firm about it, because if Parker feels me waver, he'll push and push. I feel almost hungover today -- my temper has been too close to the surface, and I feel tired like I do after a bad headache. I feel like I'm grieving a bit. I would like to remember this indecision, because as I become more sure of my decision, I may become less tolerant of the other choices people make.
I have had some good suggestions about one-line answers when people ask why we homeschool, my favorite is "I like the flexibility."
