When you do a thing for years it becomes hard to imagine ever not doing that thing.

Today was my last day of work with Sonlight Curriculum. For the first time in over 16 years I am not employed by or under contract to Sonlight.

I’m having a hard time wrapping my mind around that idea.

I’m at peace with God’s leading and our decision to move, but in the back of my mind I seem to have the notion that I’m just going on vacation. But no. This is it. The end of an era.

I’m excited to see what God has in store and how the future will play out. However, moving on is bittersweet. I have thoroughly enjoyed my years serving as a homeschool advisor and helping other parents figure out how best to use Sonlight.

Lovely roses from my co-workers.

My new job will be in customer service at the same company where Lyle will be working. I am looking forward to that, but it will definitely be different.

I’ve always said life is an adventure, so I’m eager to see what lies in store.

I don’t need to have the plan in hand,
I don’t need to have the end in sight,
All I need to do is follow you,
wherever you lead and do what you ask me to.

    I will miss you so much! You are so very knowledgeable, helpful and organized. Not having another Karla around —- hard to imagine! My prayers are with you as you move on. Much love, Karla

    Kylen is 16, so that would be me if he was graduating right now. I can’t imagine life without homeschooling! Big changes sure can be weird and unsettling, but I agree that God has things well in hand. Like you, I’m eager to see where He takes you! Oh, and congrats on your new job!!!
