I just found out we are moving–and it’s not to anywhere I want to move to. It’s in the middle of nowhere, we know no one there, and the nearest BSF class is a 5-hour drive.
It definitely wasn’t what I was hoping for. But my kids will get to be with their daddy almost every night–something they desperately need.
It’s not a long-term move (2 years or so) but a move nonetheless and for those of you who move frequently and with little kids and 2 dogs, no part is ever fun. No one in my family is excited about it but its all about getting the job experience for my husband so hopefully after 2 years we can move to where we want to live (civilization would be nice).
I will have to pray hard about BSF. My main problem: I have kids in two-age groups: the school-age and the toddler age, which meet at different times in BSF classes. This is my major obstacle as I see it (especially as I’ve been told by you all that kids are not allowed in discussion groups and lectures or something like that). Since I will be homeschooling, I will have my kids with me at all times.
Understanding God’s plan in this will be a challenge–no doubt about it. We moved to where we presently live because I wanted to live here but obviously God doesn’t want us here.
Then there’s this whole blog thing. I thought it was a good thing and you all tell me it’s a good thing but why would God move me to a place that makes attending BSF a HUGE obstacle if this isn’t a good thing? I know my detractors are secretly excited about this news although they probably wouldn’t admit it. I can’t start a BSF because the population is not big enough to support one.
I’m still trying to wrap my head around this and luckily I have some time before we move (2 months or so). But still…it won’t be easy. Yet is anything in life ever easy?
