The School of White Girl

I did it.

My worry has officially caused my class roster to double from one to two.  I enrolled Lola into the same school as Charlie, except she is in Grade 1.  The private school was asking for their fees, and after the worry of last week, and missing school while The Mister was away because we thought it would be best to stay inside during his absence, and knowing that The Mister is going on another nearly 2-week trip soon, I got to thinking that I might like another option.  Guess what?  I have another option at my fingertips, so I contacted our support teacher to confirm that this was indeed a valid alternative for us.  I got the go ahead this morning; pressing “submit” on Lola’s application for registration filled me with the same anxiety that I felt when I did the same for Charlie.  I know from my wealth of experience (an ENTIRE 8 weeks, thank you very much, you can just call me “Teach”) that it seems like a lot to deal with at the beginning but we work at it bit by bit each day and it gets done. Plus, Lola is in Grade 1.  How complicated can it be?  I just make sure she can recognize her sight words, do basic math, and avoid eating poisonous materials.  I think we can have this wrapped up in about 3 weeks.

My students are advanced.

    Yeah! Way to go!!!
    If I can homeschool two kids and run a dayhome 55 hours a week and co-run a residential rental company all without a maid and any homeschool support, pretty much anyone can do it. And with greater success than I.
    Go White Girl!!
