Big Day!

After four years of being homeschooled, my oldest, a ninth grader, will be starting high school full-time today. This will be a huge change for all of us.

As you can see from Yoda on the right, not all of us are as excited as she is.

I know this will be a good thing for her. When she said she wanted to be homeschooled (her idea, not mine) she always talked about going to high school. So this has always been there on the horizon. But the reality is a little, well, nerve wracking.

Two days away at the alternative school the kids have attended the last two years has been perfect. Five days of school a week sees like a lot!

But we'll survive.

The younger two, the cats and the dog will keep me busy today. But I'll be waiting to hear how her big day went!

I'm sure she'll have a good day. You raised/am raising her right and I'm betting she's smart like you, too. I know it's hard to let go. Hugs!

Home schooling in a great thing to do but I do think they need to go to high school to hang out with people their own age and she will be fine. I enjoyed high school myself. I know you will miss her though.

I hope she had a great day! I am sure she was probably very nervous, but will settle in and like it.

Our girl is growing up. I can't believe she's in high school.

I hope she had a good day.

Thanks all! She loved it. Said it was awesome and can't wait to go back tomorrow! We're all so pleased it went so well.
