…some times don’t work out.
Now some may think I’m hedging my bets against myself but it is practical to me: because we just “started” our new approach to education (in terms I can’t quite define, because it’s all a little messy still) I needed to have a back-up plan. An escape route? A safety net?
Whichever it is, I feel like I’m giving it my all to find the best option for the kids. I applied for the lottery in the county in which I reside for choice schools for both the kids for next school year. Now. I may not enroll them, when the time comes, if life is plodding along and all is well here.
That remains to be seen. But if it isn’t? If things aren’t so hot, and we have an opportunity to know they could go to a pretty “great” school- I’d like that chance.
My oldest loves being home. He happily works on his lessons, loves getting out and about during the day. My daughter, however, really wants to go to school. She’s been looking forward to Kindergarten since her big brother went. I’m not sure how to handle it.
I’m still testing the waters myself. I’m still tentative, trying to find that balance between mom/teacher/me/wife. It’s a lot of hats to frequently wear all at the same time. But we’re doing it. Through the summer months to make up for the fall that we pretty much skipped out on.
In the mean time we’re still learning everyday. In our own, real, way.
