Some big changes are happening around here… AGAIN.
As the universe moves and shifts opportunities sometimes arise that make you look at your choices a bit more closely.
This summer, while Ezra and I were on vacation on the Cape, I received a text message from a friend of mine who runs a local private school. I had been working on a community project with her during that time and she knew a little about our homeschooling and had grown to know a little about Ezra. In the text, she stated that there was one partial scholarship available at the school left for the 5th grade class.
It hit me hard. Was the universe trying to tell me that Ezra needed this opportunity? I had so much respect for this woman, this teacher, but the thought of sending Ezra to private school never really was allowed because the options in the area were mostly religious or like her school was very expensive. The thought of a partial scholarship for him meant we may be able to send him there for 5th grade?!!!
The wheels turned and we discussed with with Ezra’s father, our family and with Ezra. We toured the school and it was like a dream! This school was exactly what Ezra was needing!
So our big announcement is that Ezra will be attending a lovely private school this year for 5th grade. We are so excited about the school community, the curriculum (Spanish, yoga, guitar, business!!!).
Since we will be paying tuition for Ezra to attend the school I will be working a bit more at the store helping my husband and keeping our home flowing, which means Lucas will be starting Kindergarten! I am so excited to see how he grows! He is very excited about his new big boy school, especially art class he says.
I have to admit, I was in mourning a bit about letting go of our homeschool. I learned so much about my children in the year we spent schooling together and I loved having the time with them. You never know, we may end up homeschooling again down the road, but for now we are on the path to school. What doesn’t bend breaks I say and I knew that I had to look at something the universe was trying to put in my child’s path rather than get stuck on my personal desire for our homeschool dreams.
I will of course share how it is going and how the boys are thriving. It is going to be a big year!
Thank you, universe, friends, family for supporting us on this journey. Our journey bends and flows as we parent these beautiful boys and I like to think that we are following the path that is laid out for us!
