Day 226 - Public Schools...

*I want to preface this by saying I am a fan of public schools...that work.*

As if we needed any more reasons :o) Reason #100 why we are not attending school in our school district...

Our school district announced a new start and end time for the upcoming school year THIS AFTERNOON (school starts Thursday!). Talk about disorganization! Before today, elementary students were scheduled to be at school at 7:30 a.m. The new start time is an hour later...8:35 a.m. This new start time will have the elementary students in school until 4:00 p.m.!!! CRAZY! By the way, getting out of school at 4:00 p.m. would be reason #101 why we aren't attending our public school! That is WAY too late for my baby to be at school! The high school students have to be to school by 7:35 a.m., but they get out over an hour earlier than the elementary kids. I would much rather have my young child home earlier than my teenager.

I am thankful home school is an option for my girls. I am thankful they will be able to accomplish so much more in a few hours at home than they would all day at public school. I am thankful their curriculum is infused with biblical teachings. I am thankful I get to spend my days with this angel...

Me too...I'm thankful not to be on "school schedule"...I'm thankful not to be on "school structure". I'm thankful that the word "God" is spoken in our home many times a day. That is a beautiful picture by the way! (I'll step off my soapbox now.)
