Well yesterday was the first day of our co-op. It seemed to be, as one mom put it, mass chaos that went really really well. We had a great turn out. Two families were missing due to various reasons but everyone else was there to kick off an exciting year. I even received several emails last night and today with lovely things to say about our first day. A couple of them had good criticism of things that needed to be brought to my attention.
I am also excited to report that by the first of the year we should have a team formed to work on taking over for next year! Several people have stepped into place to form a leadership team that will be taking over the logistics of many areas yet this year. I had really tried to set up a team this past year but ended up just doing things to make them happen. Now that they are happening and people can see the vision, I think that we will have many active hands. Exactly what a co-op should be. I had said several times that I wanted to work myself out of a job by the end of this year and by George, I think it may come true!
One friend asked if I could truly let go (ok so she knows I am a bit of a control freak) or at least share some of the control. I think I will be fine as this all seems to be happening in God’s time. Each time I get to the point where I think I am accomplishing what He wants and am doing His will in this area and all will be well I am reminded that I should do what He has directed me to do now and not worry about tomorrow.
On that note.. my tomorrows are a bit lonelier as my best friend hubby has been sent to Iowa to work. Down by Denison, about 4 hours from here. He said tonight that it sounds like they won’t work on Sundays so he will come home for Saturday nights and go back on Sunday evening. We are grateful for the work but we will miss him!
Better get to bed as we have a full day of school, play, housework, and crafting planned. I meant to write this post much earlier but my two grandsons came to play!
