Back To School We Go ( from homeschooling back to public)

I haven't had to worry about back to school shopping for 2 years.

My kids are going back to public school this year after being home schooled for the past 2 years. I have mixed emotions and feelings about it. There are things I like and advantages and disadvantages to both. 

The girls chose  to go back this year. I really struggled with what to do with my son and we have come across a path that has led us to him going to school and living with his grandma. It wasn't exactly an easy choice to make but it definitely feels like the right choice. 

Lots of changes going on and I hope that everything will turn out for the better. Who knows what will be in store for us next year. Homeschooling was a wonderful experience and I do not regret it!

My oldest daughter will be in seventh grade starting tomorrow. My youngest daughter will start third grade on Tuesday. My husband goes back to SLCC for Fall semester on Wednesday. My son will start 10th grade next Monday. I can't believe we'll have someone in Elementary school, Junior High (middle school, whatever you want to call it), High School and College. Let the fun and chaos begin.

She's growing up... 6 years today! (my first surrobaby)

Happy 6th Birthday to my dear sweet surrobaby. I cannot believe it's been 6 years now.

I gave birth to her in a military hospital and it was my first natural experience, because at that point there was not enough time for pain meds. Most of the pregnancy was different from my own which I thought was cool.

We celebrated a few days later by going to Disneyland. (we lived in CA at the time)

You can read more about her birth and see pictures in my 100th post: http://mormonsurrogate.blogspot.com/2010/08/my-100th-post-4-years-ago-today-august.html

August 1st will always be a special day for me!  :)
