So, last week I reported that Alex was thinking about trying out public school next year. That notion has now passed. Once she realized that there are SIX classes of second graders in the local school, she also realized that the chances of being in class with her best neighbor friend were not great. We talked about what she wanted from the public school, she determined that she wanted "Spanish" and "to go to school from 9-4pm all day." We compromised by ordering a new Math, history and Spanish curriculum that we're starting immediately (we're pretty much through 1st grade work, so this lends itself perfectly for a new school year). The first day of Spanish lessons were really fun.
