Summer Comes to a Close

The kids are heading to school next week. It's kind of sad that school begins so early in our state. I just don't feel like we've had enough of summer yet. Well, I'm so OVER this heat but you know what I mean.

For Rory and Ally it will be their first time in a traditional classroom setting. We are all really excited. The kids are going to a charter school not far from our home that has a reputation for being top notch. In fact, it was one of the top ten school in the state. We are really comfortable with the staff there and have peace about the decision we made to send the children.

We had previously planned to have the kids attend a private Christian school but we just couldn't choke down the cost of tuition. Especially in light of the fact that we want to adopt again. We knew that the choice came down to adding another child to our family or private education. You know which choice we made.

The girls have to wear uniforms and in true girly fashion couldn't be more thrilled. Mom likes the simplicity uniforms offer. Yeah for not having arguments in the morning about what they will wear for school!

I just don't know what I will do when Jonas and I are alone during the day... but I have a few ideas. I'll keep you posted as news comes in.

How exciting! I can't wait to hear how they do! I'm glad you're not so stressed anymore about the finances of school...and that you found a great alternative.

Glad you are at peace about your decision on the school. My daughter had to wear uniforms when we moved to FL and I loved the ease of it!
