School’s Out! EEEEEEE!

Half day of school on Friday!

I’ve really gotten my $$ worth for this chalkboard.

Ellie had a some friends over to celebrate with make-your-own ice cream sundaes and water squirt things.

Squirters because I thought the kids would get LESS wet than the sprinkler. I was very very wrong.

And then took a nice nap.

So peaceful. So quiet.

We had a family meeting that night at dinner to talk about our plans for the next school year. The final vote was unanimous: we will not return to our Elementary School in the fall. If I hadn’t already made up my mind that this was a better choice for all of us, that last School Board meeting and subsequent resignation of the Superintendent would have sealed the deal. I have zero faith that this board is capable of affecting lasting change. Without drastic changes to the current maintenance system, a brand new building won’t help the situation – it’ll be right back in ruins fifteen years from now.

I’ve got my eye on an accredited distance learning program that sounds like it was made for Ellie.

Don't be the product, buy the product!
