brief school update

Remember how we decided to switch schools this upcoming year for The May Queen, in large part because we were worried that the small school she was in would close due to financial problems?

Guess what letter we got in the mail while we were on our Road Trip? Yup. The school closed. We're SO glad we took care of this last spring, and aren't scrambling for a new school now (she couldn't just go to the public schools, due to being 3 days younger than the cut off).

I'm sad the school closed, but OH SO GLAD we figured this one out early.

WOW! They just announced that NOW? Yeesh. Good thing you were planning ahead. There are probably some very stressed kids and parents in your town.

Uh. Where's the Mexico post? It was here a second ago?

You did a great job. Way to go with your intuition. I am so bad at that.

It's so nice to get confirmation that you did the right thing. So often we're left wondering. Good for you. (All those other poor folks must be feeling the stress now, though.)

Another confirmation to go with your gut! Whew! Can you imagine the stress you'd be going through when instead you can just keep enjoying the summer?

Great instincts!

What a huge relief for you. Good call.

But, oh, those poor parents who have to scramble to find another place to send their kids.

I love it when those gut feelings are validated.
