The times...they are a changin'!
As some of you know, we've had a bit of trouble with the new school and particularly one teacher there. This week we hit our breaking point. After many tears, some yelling and numerous phone calls (and even a little wine for momma), Riley will be starting a new school on Monday, Rugby will remain where he is since his teacher is great and he's finally starting to make some friends. Riley is hesitant, as any child would be, to change schools in the middle of a school year. He cried a bit when he found out Rugby wasn't going to be there, and only asked if it was ok to go meet the teacher before he starts school. But, Riley is my child that adapts best to change and is the most socially outgoing, so I don't think we'll have any problems. Riley will be attending the Lutheran school in town. And the best part is TJ IS GOING, TOO!! He will have class from 12:30 to 3 on Tuesday and Thursday. He is SO EXCITED about going to school. He was there to play today while I worked out and it didn't phase him....not even seeing the bigger kids. He didn't get all shy and clingy like usual! I am praying this is a good thing for him as I know it really is. I'm so encouraged by the environment there and by the people I've met so far. And who knows, maybe next year all 4 kids will be there.
