So it looks like I'll be minus a kiddo at home next year.

Part of me is sad, the other part is thrilled for my daughter and this opportunity.

The board is reviewing the recommendation, but it looks like she will be attending a local private school for bright dyslexic children for the next two years (it only goes to grade 8 and she's entering grade 7 this fall). She has been shadowing there and loves it.

She'll be coming home again for high school, because there aren't any dyslexia specific schools for high schoolers locally (unless she can score an awesome scholarship to one of the dylexia boarding school elsewhere - but it would have to be a freakin' amazing scholarship since they run upwards of at least 40K a year for boarders, lol!) and public school is off the table for the forseeable future.

*sigh*

Alas, I still have two more (boys) at home with me, and barring any awesome opportunities like this, or an eventual well thought out request to attend a local Catholic school, they will be homeschooled long term. My middle child will be doing junior k/kindergarten at home with me this fall; the other is still a babe.

I am a Home Schooling, Vaccinating, Non spanking, Nightmare Cuddling, Dessert Giving, Bedtime Kissing, Book Reading, Stay at Home Mom. I believe in the benefit of organized after school activities and nosy, involved parents. I believe in spoiling my children. I believe that I have seen the village and I do not want it anywhere near my children. Now for the controversial stuff: we have traditional gender roles, we're Catholic, I'm Libertarian, he's Republican, we're both conservative, and we own guns (now there's no need to ask, lol).             Aimee

Oh it isn't a sure thing yet. We've been given a tentative thumbs up though. She's thrilled. I'm happy to know I"ll have her home for high school :)

Aw, that sounds like a great opportunity, though!

And, honestly, it will be easy to have the two younger close in age than to juggle 3 with a large gap. 8)

It is an amazing opportunity. There are only 12 kids in the entire school right now - only like 4 in her grade/class.

I so wish I'd known that my son had dysgraphia and dyscalculia and he had resources to help him work around those issues. I feel like I failed him in a way.

I think it's great your girl likes this school and will have that opportunity! Good for all of you!

That is awesome news for your daughter and you. Bittersweet though it may be.
