How does one go about letting the first of one's children go? Whew. This is hard. But I have so many other things to do, physicals, dental appointments, preparing for the other 6 students that are still home schooling, getting to the doctor for the pregnancy, and so on. The only thing that is keeping me sane right now is the mantra "One Thing At A Time".
First, the shopping
then the school work,
then the physicals
then make an appointment for me
then get my schedule in order for the school day
then go to the "good bye" gatherings with the various friends and family
then pack up
then say good bye
then start school here
then go the OB
then see what life presents after that.
sigh. Sometimes I wonder how I will do it. Then I realize I must.
