Homeschooler Goes To School

Child #3 asked to see what it would be like to go to "real" school. She says she's not interested in going forever, just a week. So, today she went off to our parish school. Being Catholic Schools Week, they're planning all kinds of fun activities. Maybe I should have waited for exam week to send her.

I realized getting up at 7:00 this morning, (ugh), that my darling daughter might need a bag lunch. And maybe I should send her with a pencil and some paper. Then there was a debate about whether or not she could take her allergy medicine with her. She couldn't understand why the medicine would have to be given to the school nurse when she is a perfectly responsible 12-year old.

I'll let you know how the week goes. I just hope they don't make me work Bingo Night.

Interesting. How did you get the school to let her come for a week?
And this will be an atypical week. You're right. You should have made her go duing a "regular" week! She'll have too much fun this week!
Looking forward to further reports....

We have a really good relationship with our parish and the school. They were thrilled to have dd join them.

I'll report at the end of the week.
