Josh and I had a wonderful conversation concerning the details below. I am thrilled to have a husband who listens to me and also challenges me to see things in a different way. My husband is in educational administration and works in the middle school our children will attend! So... the details of my heart (at the moment) are definitely a twist in the plan! :) However, Josh is incredibly open to new ideas but also challenges my thoughts. I love that about him.
We are beyond blessed to have so many WONDERFUL options. Josh mentioned - he believes this is on my heart because I am a professional mother trying to do the right thing - because I want to do the right thing for our children - whatever that may be. I'm considering it all! Does that make sense?
I believe that we will do the right thing - public, private, home - or a combination of it all.
My final thoughts - and I believe this with all of my heart:

One person cannot fill in all of the gaps - a public teacher, a private teacher, a parent. It takes a team. Ultimately, a child's education - academically, morally, spiritually - is the responsibility of the parents. As parents, we must create a team of people to join us on this task we've been called to do. Each of our teams may look different - depending on the needs and desires of each individual home. What a challenge, honor and privilege to raise up these children so that one day we will release them into the world and say, "Go! Go make the world a more beautiful place and glorify God!"
