Whatever be the case, by the Sunday before school, it was decided that it wasn’t such a good fit, after all. First off, we will be taking a series of trips in the fall, so she’d miss a few of weeks. Second, I think the class is beginner French, which would be fine for her, but she might benefit from more of a challenge. Finally, it’s every day at 8:00AM, which is kind of brutal.
I had to scramble to inform the school that we would not be attending after all. I emailed the language coordinator, and called the school on Monday AM. They were very cool about it, it worked out fine, and we didn’t have to scramble for the first day of class.
What we did end up doing was having our end of year evaluations done. We piled into the car and headed over to DE’s for a playdate/evaluation day. It works out nicely because DE does a good job (maybe more than he needs to) and his kids are good friends with our kids. Plus, DE and I are friends, so we can sit and talk guy-talk. It was also a good chance for me to bolt into White River and get market supplies without having to drag the kids along. I love when that happens.
Now we’re almost ready to enroll in the 2013-14 school year. The only thing left to do is create A’s curriculum, which is not easy, but nobody said being a parent was easy, right?
Until the next time, thanks for reading, and thanks to Eileen Sandá for the pic.
