A New Adventure Begins
Sorry I haven't been posting any of my sewing creations over the past week or so but we have had a lot happen at our house. I am officially a Homeschoolin' Mama! Ole and I made the decision to pull Elliott out of public school so I could educate him at home. He was so miserable and after many sleepless nights, conversations with friends and family we knew what we had to do. Since then we have noticed a huge change in Elliott's attitude and general happiness. He is smiling again!!!! There were just so many signs that public school was not going to work for him. I spoke to his teacher, the principal, etc. and it was completely obvious that the public school system isn't doing anything to enrich their gifted students and therefore they are getting left behind and suffering. We just couldn't let that happen to Elliott. So, we are embarking on a momentous adventure into the world of Homeschooling. I will be working with Elliott 4 days a week and he will be going to see our friend Tiffeni on Wednesday's for enrichment and private tutoring. Tiffeni is an amazing person and we are so lucky to have found her. She has her Masters in Education and is a Froebel Pedagog, but more than anything Elliott just loves her.
