around here

January 23 2014 044

there is a lot of talk about schools around here lately

again

Lily is old enough to start pre-k in september and we are having a bit of a hard time trying to figure out where to send her

there are not many public options

both Will and i were raised going to public schools and we believe in the public school system

when it’s good. and when it works

we of course live in the state of florida where unless it is a charter public school, it can get scary

the thing with charter schools (which we applied for one) is that you only get in by lottery

there is only a fifty-fifty chance of getting in

so, even though we applied for Lily, we won’t know until april (?) if she is in or not

in the meanwhile, deadlines to go somewhere else are either over or coming to an end

it all gets to be way too much and way to stressful and hello, it is only pre-k!

did any of you have to go through this with your little ones? or are you going through it now?

share with me…

other than school stress, it was a good week

a sunny and rainy week

happy friday friends

wishing you all a great weekend
