Nicholas' new school has a playground area and soccer field that is open on the weekends for neighborhood children to go play. Yesterday Nicholas rode his bike while we walked with him to play at his new school. He was proud to show Daddy around the playground area.
Nicholas starts a new soccer season this week and he wanted to get in a little practice with Daddy. So we brought the soccer ball along with us and Daddy and Nicholas practiced passing and dribbling in the school's soccer field.
It was very hot and even with a bunch of Gatorade on hand, we were all tired and thirsty. Time to head back home.
We have open house at the school this Thursday where we will get to meet Nicholas' teacher and see his classroom. School starts Monday, August 24th. I can't believe he'll be in Kindergarten! I still don't feel convinced that this school is the right decision for him. My heart tugs at me to homeschool him and I wish we could afford Coram Deo Academy. But I just don't have the patience and organization to homeschool full-time and for now we have to watch every penny because we'll need to replace both of our vehicles very soon. So, at least for this year, he'll be in public school and we'll see how it goes.
