Fresh Start

I got to meet Amelia's new principal last week.  I liked her.  I got a good "vibe".  She has read over the entire psych. evaluation and didn't seem phased by it.  She said that she didn't see anything in that report that they couldn't handle.  The advantage that they have is that their school is much smaller.  Big isn't always better.

In the next few weeks, we will meet with her new teacher.  I have every reason to believe that giving Amelia a fresh start is a good thing.

The idea that my kids will be separated this year is hard to grasp.  It feels weird that they will be going to different schools.  Our loyalties will be split.  Different uniform, different schedule.  There will be lots of adjustments for us this year, but, I have to believe it's all good.

In the mean time, we are enjoying the summer....lots of time in Aunt Frannie's pool, movies, popcorn, bike riding and of course the regular "I'm bored...I have nothing to do" moments!

Summer reading lists and math packets can wait for a few more weeks!

It will seem strange for a while and even hectic Nancy. We had 3 different schools last year and it was overwhelming at times. I will pray that you find the right routine for everyone in your family.
