I'm writing this on Wednesday night because I'm heading out the door early Thursday. We're going to the open house of a nearby private school to see if we want to enroll DD next year. Due to the dearth of good homeschooling groups and activities, we feel that it's probably best for her to attend school. We'd planned on starting her for high school regardless, but I'm thinking that starting her in eighth grade might be easier on her.
I did a drive by of the school today because we have to be at the open house so early, I didn't want to run the risk of getting lost. Good thing -- it wasn't where I thought it was exactly.
DD is scared and apprehensive about school since she's never gone. "How does the cafeteria work?" or "What do I do a recess?" or "What if no one talks to me?".
Hopefully the open house tomorrow will help with some of her fears. She doesn't realize how nervous I am, too. I've not had her out of my sight, except with good friends or at a relative's house, EVER her entire life. This will be a difficult life change for us both.
Now I just need to figure out how we'll fund this little change of plans. *sigh*
I got through the first fifty pages of Camilla's story in edits. It was the easy part, not a lot of plot changes there. Now it's getting a bit stickier. I have to change the things her mom does and why, I have to incorporate Jed's new business, and slow down Matthew's infatuation. Lots of changes on the horizon, but the story is just so much fun (I'm giggling half the time... either the story is cute or I should go stay at the place with the padded walls) I'm not complaining about the editing too much.
You Are a Jellyfish
You are a vulnerable person, but you also have a lot of inner strength. Sometimes you even surprise yourself.
You are very honest and open. You have nothing to hide and resent it when people don't tell you the truth.
You are illuminating and insightful. You understand and explain the world well.
You are energizing and enthusiastic. You get people up and moving.
Hmmm, maybe 50/50...
