My girls and I have been blessed with some wonderful friendships through our homeschooling co-op. We get friendship, encouragement and some learning. It is just about perfect.
We are on our third term with group, so we’re starting to get brave and set up play dates with people from co-op. Today was our first one. It was at the house of Sue’s very favorite person from co-op. And one of my faves too.
But you guys know me, I stress in social situations. I am always so worried about talking too much, boring others, sharing too much, and just making people want to run. I typically get so nervous I pray one of my kids will wake up a little sick so we can cancel.
I didn’t freak out.
I am pretty proud of myself. I don’t think I talked too much. I don’t think I bored her too much.
I was comfortable.
I drove home with a smile on my face. And a big sigh of relief.
I did it.
(And, yes, the girls had fun at my, er, their, play date.)Survive til you Thrive!
