Lily has been struggling since having to leave Kolbe school. Her new school was overwhelming her. She was becoming completely opposite of her nature. It was sad to see. She was like a deer in the headlights. Her class was large and full of rowdy and rough children. She has never been able to deal with that type of thing well.
Last week I had expressed my concern to the principal and asked that they consider putting an aide in that class. I told them that if they couldn't provide an aide, I would be pulling Lily out of the school.
They brushed me off, said that Lily was doing fine and they didn't feel the class needed an aide.
So, Friday was her last day.
As soon as we told Lily she was going to do homeschool for the rest of this year, she was back to her cheery and lovely self. Our first day of homeschool was yesterday, and she was beaming. She loves her worksheets, and I'm enjoying having her here with me.
An education isn't worth it if a child's spirit is completely squashed. I am most concerned with my child's soul, not some silly common core standards. She is bright and capable, and just needs a loving environment to grow.
This is only temporary, as we are going to try yet another school next year. If that doesn't go well, we will homeschool all the children.
Please pray for us in this new endeavor!
