What’s happening?

Our Six Girls!!

Becca’s school called this week with a scheduling conflict.  She had planned on taking both band and orchestra – unfortunately, they are during the same school period – she had to choose one!  Drama and tears!  She decided upon the Viola and Orchestra.  So we begin a new chapter in Becca’s musical career.

Everyone is excited for school to start!  Mama, how many days until school starts?  I hear this a million times a day!  :)  Everyone is sad that Kris is leaving, though.  I have no idea how we are going to survive without her!

I went to a conference for Sammi’s school on Saturday and we go again on Monday (please be healthy Bella!) (and thank you Kris or I couldn’t go!).  I am so excited about Sammi’s school.  People have asked me about it, so here goes.  It is like a cross between a private school and a home school.  On Tuesdays they go to school.  They wear uniforms.  They bring their work for the week and it is graded there.  They have chapel and then classes.  It follows a classical education model so there is a heavy emphasis on Western Civilization thinking, logic, Latin (next year maybe), and the written word.  The head master is the pastor of Grace Community Church.  At the conference I heard three different pastors speak – it is a Christian school, but not affiliated with any one denomination.  I am excited that Sammi will get this opportunity.  At this season in my life, it seems to be the best of both worlds.

I am so excited that Bella can be in the living room with everyone! Sam's school sounds really cool. I was wondering what the drama was for Becca this week but hadn't had time to call - glad she worked it out.

Sammi's school sounds awesome! I'm glad you were able to get here in. Most of the "christian" schools here in Katy require you to give what church you're with. All ending when you put down The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints! Can't let a member from that cult matter how young they are!! LOL
