First Day of School - 2010

I am not taking this all that well. I sent my kids to school kicking and screaming. They were not kicking and screaming, I was. They were quiet excited. This is the first year they are going to public school. They have always gone to a private Christian school that I love. Several things happened and we decided it was just not the best thing for our family this year. We live in a really good school district so we are trying public school. I am devastated. I am scared to death about public school. I want them in a school that teaches them to love God. It is not about me. It is about what is best for them and my family. But, I can still be sad about it and I can still grieve it, and I am. Pity party today, big girl pants tomorrow.

Hi, we met at Eastgate earlier this summer..our girls were swimming together-we both know Rhonda Shaw! I am scared too and my kids have always gone to public school but this whole Jr. High is another story. Anyway, I am starting a Chaffin Moms In Touch Group at Eastside on Monday mornings at 9:30 in their Community Room-you ought to come! Lori Raible
