School's in Session

So this year I sent my babies to school. It was harder than I thought it was going to be. I made it a whole tow and a half hours before I started bawling. It is hard to give up the freedom and control. I know this is where we need.

First I want to tell you about the school that they got into and how it happened. I was looking for a charter school to put the boys into. I looked at a ton, but all of the lotteries were over and I was pretty sure I was going to have to wait until next year to get them into a charter school. Well, I was looking on the internet and happen t stumble across a school that was holding one last lottery to fill it's seats. So I called them. It happened to be the same day that we were moving into our new rented house and I was hauling a trailer down to Orem where we were going to live. So I pulled into the school, trailer and all.... and registered them pretty much thinking that the boys would be on the wait list. I drove away and realized that our house was about a 1/4 of a mile away from the school.  {the public school that they going to go to they were going to have to be bussed.} So on with our day we went.... in fact I really didn't think much about it. Then I checked my email a couple days later and found that James got in!! I was so excited. The school they are going to teaches with a much more classical view. The books that they are to read are really good books, they way the teach each child is great. I know that they are teaching a class but they still try to teach it in many ways sot hat each child is taught a way that he can learn.

I thought great!! James is in. I checked and Tommy and Tim were still on the wait list. I was told that Tommy has a good chance of getting in, but Tim was quite  aways down. So I went ahead and registered the two of them at the public school that we are in the boundaries for.

About a week later I go another email saying that Tommy had a seat in a class! I was excited and got everything together fr him. Tommy was really excited to be going with James.

So now I was dealing with two different schools and two different schedules, but at least next year Tim will be with them too.

So Tim and I attended his Back to School Night, and met his teacher and saw his class. He was excited to go to school... really nervous, but excited.

That night at 9:00pm I was reading and I got a call from the school. A spot had opened up for Tim!!


I was floored!!! This is a Charter school... and one that is pretty highly ranked {as far as elementary goes} My mother in law know a lady that lives near her that has been trying to get her kids into this school for 3 years, and I ended up getting all three boys in this year! I know we are being watched over and I know that the Lord knows me and the desires of my heart. This is a huge blessing!

 Ok... so they really are happy it was just really bright that day and the sun was in their eyes.

James and Tommy started on Monday and Tim started on Wednesday, so here are the two boys together.
And all of the boys.... I really am not ready for this. I'm glad that I have the two little ones at home to keep me company.
Tim's first day. It took a little convincing to get him out of the door, but we made it.
And really.... I don't know what is up with Tim, he really was happy.

My three little scholars are ready for school! {mom however is still working on it....}
