Back to School

Every year.  It happens every. single. year.  It's so not my favorite but all good summers must come to an end.  This year we really prayed about what would be the best educational option for every kid and the answer terrified me.  
Kabe headed back to GPA school to be in Mrs. Waldman's class.  He was the first to start and started all by himself for the first time in his life.  

Darla started next, also at GPA for the Montessori Kindergarten program.  She rode the bus with Kabe and went all-day.  She LOVES it and is doing so well.  She was ready ready ready.

Brigham started at East Elementary as part of the dual immersion program there.  He learned how to say, "Yo Soy Batman" for his teacher on the first day of school.  He was a little scared to go by himself and it was killer hard on Mama, but with his love for language we felt like this was right (after our next big decision he moved back to GPA school for a few months to be in his comfort zone)

Leisl got into the Speech program at South Elementary Preschool and enjoyed every single minute of it.  Only 2 times a week it was a fun diversion for her (bus ride and all) and a nice little break for the Mama and Noah.

Ksenya and Ayvri decided to school at home this year through a program called MyTech High.  They were super self-motivated and did a great job on all their studes.  They are such smart girls and enjoyed all the extra free time it gave them to pursue other hobbies and interests.  

I love watching him walk her to the bus.
