My need to be professional is often at odds with being a 2E wife and mother. ADHD leads to grand ideas. Gifts and talents lead to recognizing where there are needs and how my abilities could meet those needs. However, the biggest lesson I've learned (re-learned?), in the past year is that the big picture must be accounted for. Provision Academy as a homeschooling center is likely at least 5 years off.
In the meantime, helping and homeschooling are still of central importance to me. With a newly 2 year old and and 8 year old who is not yet reading fluently, I wanted to figure out what I could offer to serve others, that would fit our lifestyle.
