It's Catholic schools week and there are a way ton more blogs (especially Team Whitaker) better than this one BUT, I not going to be totally left out...
Can I tell you just how much this note means to me?
A whole lot. It reaffirms to me that we made the best decision. Probably one of the single most difficult decisions Lee and I have made.
E and R are into writing notes and drawing pics for everyone. E handed us this one night last week and if I were pregnant I probably would have cried. I would have cried because it is exactly what I needed to hear (or know) from E. We (mostly me) agonized over sending her to kindergarten at OLPH this time last year (and the year before for that matter).
The amount of time that I wanted to talk to Lee about it was innumerable - especially since we have LONG drives to church every week (and twice a week during Lent) so that is the best time to bring up anything because he cannot escape. Anyhow school topic had been discussed ad nauseum and we decided we needed to give the school a try.
We took E last spring and I think she was sold on the geoboards.
Then came showtime. The first day of school. I highly don't recommend sending your first child to school while you have raging pregnancy hormones. You will cry. You will cry. You will cry.
Ever since that first week though it has been pretty smooth sailing. The kids in her class are super sweet. The parents and teachers are so great. The morning prayer line was awesome because I got to actually meet and talk to other parents - and I cannot wait for it to be reinstated when the warmer weather rolls in.
I truly believe that this school is exactly where we need to be. It has been such a blessing to our family to be a part of this school community and we hope to continue to be a part of it for many more years and kids to come.
