Over the past few weeks, I had become more and more anxious about being the learning coach for my daughter’s home school. Being a teacher has never been a desire for me. In fact, I was always happy to have my involvement with school end after getting the kids up and taking them to school and then later remembering to pick them up in the afternoon. I was quite content with that.
I have discovered that although this may be one of the easiest home schools out there for parents, it still will take up way more of my time than I anticipated. I finally had to give myself a good talking to and remind myself that even if it is hard to begin with or even if it is hard the whole time, I can do hard things. It probably won’t kill me, and therefore will make me stronger. Obviously I believe this is what is best for my daughter, and I am affirming that it must be something I need too.
Meanwhile, the postcard that I sent of the painting "Another American Patriot"
Within the next few days I will finish up and ship a painting for the Sacred Art Festival in Durango, CO. I will miss being in attendance for this wonderful weekend of art, poetry, and music. As this is the fourth year, I am sure it will be even better than ever. http://www.sacredartfestival.com
It is clear to me that I won’t be able to spend quite as much time on my artwork as I would like, seeing as I would like to spend the majority of my time on it, and since family commitments are my priority. However, I will do my best to continue to pursue something positive and progressive artistically, and report back here at some point every week. Yea, commitments!
