Well, it broke my heart today but Ds is officially enrolled in public high school.
I think I've mentioned it here that he REALLY wanted into the robotics and engineering program at the local high school. We missed the district cut-off date but due to being homeschoolers they let him submit the application.
School starts Monday and I JUST got notification at 3:20 pm today @@ it took me calling EVERY day this week. Finally Thursday the Principal says, "I would take him but need approval from the Distrtict.I will call the District and get back to you today (Thurs)."
No word from him so I called the District today.. She said she hadn't heard from the school if they would accept him or not but that Mr. R had left her a message, they are playing phone tag." @@ She finally decided from my info and the phone tag that she would write up the acceptance letter... YEAH!! (Well, sort of!)
As I pulled into the driveway, i got a call from Mr. R saying he finally got ahold of the District lady and he understood I had been to her office and gotten the letter.. LOL and he welcomed us and went over everything I need to get him set up Monday :) I felt really good after talking to him.
Then,as I was hanging up from Mr. R the District lady called back and confirmed that she confirmed it with Mr. R... LOL..and that she wishes DS the best of luck...
I have to remind myself this is DS's experience and it might be WONDERFUL compared to my experiences. It KILLED me to work so hard for something I really DONT want to happen, but DS wanted it so badly, and I believe he's of an age to have a say in the decision as long as it benefits him.
