Open House was interesting. There's 5 Kindergarten classes and only Duke's teacher and the teacher next to his class decorated. It was farm themed. And they really went all out.
I was talking to Duke's teacher and was rudely interrupted by a parent who wanted to know how her child acts. Yeah well, take a look at yourself, lady. You would think they were giving out free tickets to a Raiders game with all the Chola moms that were there. ( I love Cholas. I grew up with them and might have been mistaken for one a long time ago. )
I was amused by several things.
The kids made butter earlier that day and there was a "Butter Journal" and this stick of butter looked suspect to me. ( I found out a day later that it was my child that actually drew this! That's what I get for making fun of kids drawings! )
Now this was great. A true classic. Mother's Day Special uni-brows and witch moles. I'm in the yellow hat. Duke made my eyes look glossy! Maybe I really look that enthusiastic. #lulz
We turn in the paperwork to our school district on Monday to release Duke so we can start the process of enrolling him in our county's home independent study program. Wednesday is when we take a tour of the campus. It's exciting but I would be lying if I didn't tell you I'm crazy nervous. We're our children's first teachers so I don't have a problem with that part of homeschooling, I just need reassurance or a sign we're making the right decision. Chris & I both went to school K-12 and no one in our family circle was homeschooled. I'm sure after Wednesday I'll be more at ease.
