After a flurry of emails and a very tense month of June Eldest retested today. We spent three hours at the school, she was testing, I was chewing my nails and pacing. The end result?
Eldest will return to her school August 20th as a fourth grade student.
I'm thrilled, in a slightly guilty way, homeschooling would mean a lot less writing time. On one hand, I think I could probably provide her with a better education at home. On the other hand, attending a public school allows her to have speech and language services four days and week. Not to mention the whole Losing My Sanity thing. Getting an hour or two to write makes me a happier person.
What this means for you is... not much. The blog will stay on Summer Hours until September. I'll keep waking up at 5am to write. My scheduled release dates (I can't tell you exact dates yet but they're coming soon) will stay the same. I am feeling a lot less stressed though.
Now... to pack Eldest off to summer camp and finish teaching Miss Pink fractions...
