I just signed our older son up for school. Ahhh ... I homeschooled him this past year and feel like a failure since I am not continuing on with it. But hopefully he will have fun and it will be less stressful at our house. I really liked the planning and teaching - when he would do school. A lot of times it was a struggle to say the least, especially towards the end of the year. Funny how he has no problems with authority unless it's me!
I think he will really like the new school; it is a charter school that many people have heard great things about. I met the principal today and he used the phrase "I/we are blessed . . ." three times when I was talking to him. That always makes an impact when people say that instead of "I'm lucky . . ." So it helped calm my nerves about signing him up for this school. Although I hope they have A/C - they are doing construction on the school now and it was mighty hot in there!
It will be interesting having him wear a uniform everyday. He didn't even have uniforms at his Christian school. I am okay with uniforms, it simplifies the buying of school clothes and I know there is less of a chance for him to be distracted by what someone is wearing (or not wearing as he gets older!)
I am and will be praying for a great start to his new school. If anyone who reads this wants to send one up please do.
