2016 has been a year bursting at the seams. As this year comes to a close, I've been reflecting on the last 12 months, and how cyclical life is.
Since moving back to California, we struggled with Zoe's new school and teacher. Thanks to many friends locally and a far, we have made a decision to pull Zoe out of her traditional public school and transition to a hybrid home school program.
This change is going to have a large impact on our family, and more specifically, my daily routine. As a small child, Zoe was in daycare full time. It wasn't until we moved to Idaho that I got to be home with her, part time. I found this page I made from 2011, reflecting on the fun I had finally being able to get some time at home with her. For the last few years, the tables have flipped and she has been in school full time. We are now going to be circling back to her at home.
I've been praying that we are making the right decision and that I won't go too crazy spending so much time together. As I read the journaling on this page, I'm taken back to that tiny apartment, the bitter cold winter months and being snowed in for days. Remembering those days is comforting - knowing that now, we will have school work to do, sunny days, a fenced yard and a park across the street.
