This was the best first day of “school” ever. The Tree of Life Homeschool Co-op did a canoe trip today, and I am so proud of us!
As I was paddling on this gorgeous day, I had so many thoughts about how perfect this was. Just like with homeschooling, many of us were nervous to take this on with our kids, but once we courageously stepped into the boat and were on the water, the beauty was inspiring. Sometimes the wind tried to blow us off course, just like many of us deal almost daily with others’ concerns, scoffing, and judgement. But here was our fleet of friends, working together to navigate our little families with the flow that works best for us, and I was moved to tears. My final analogy is that I could never have taken this on so courageously without this community support. My heart is full of gratitude!
