Some of you might have learned that my domestic helper is returning to her home town soon... we've deliberated, discussed and decided...
That we are going to take the bold step of living without a domestic helper from January 2010 onwards. Honestly, I am a little apprehensive, and not sure if I can cope with all the housework, part-time homeschool and part-time work.
I am still praying hard for grace and strength...because for the past 3 years (almost), everything was taken care of by our domestic helper, in terms of housework and even the kids' daily needs... that I am actually guilty of being complacent.
That's why in my previous post, I mentioned about a major adjustment for us in the coming new year. We've decided to let our helper go back home earlier (ie. by end Dec) and have taken the plunge to send the kids to the child care centre on a half-day basis so that I could catch up on housework and other matters at home and outside.We are pleased that we've found a place for the kids where they'd experience Christian influence... it's a child care centre that's supported by the Christian community. That's Little Missy, donning her uniform.
We witnessed that Little Missy was very drawn by the teachers and the activities that the kids in the class were working on when we visited the other day. We know, she'll enjoy school as much as her brother did previously.
It is also our hope that Tim would find school interesting and not run about in class anymore... beyond that I hope they'd be able to blend in well in a class room environment, afterall, they've been homeschooled all this time.
I am excited yet a little nervous about the coming new year... but I know everything will straighten out as we go along... just have to keep focusing on my Heavenly Father~
