I could catalog all of our reasons for moving them- but what it really comes down to is: it felt right to move them! The very day that I was turning in the kids registration at Liberty- I knew that it was not the best place for MY kids. I went ahead with it anyway as it was a better choice than Sundance. This was June and school was already out- but I decided to go ahead and file a zone variance for the Litchfield School District- I was hopeful, but not holding my breath. (Does that even make sense?)
I recieved a call back from the Litchfield School District extremely quickly, letting me know that our zone variance was approved, and we could attend Scott Libby. When I was on the phone I just knew that this is where we were supposed to go. I have a friend who has had her daughter at Scott Libby since kindergarten and she is in third grade now. I immediately called her to talk about carpooling! She takes the kids in the morning and I pick them up in the afternoon- life is good!!
The best part- MY KIDS ARE HAPPY AT SCHOOL!
The second best part- K-5!
The third best part- my kids no longer stare at the back of heads during lunch or share the cafeteria with the PE classes!
The fourth best part- NO YELLING LUNCH HELPERS!
My only regret is that we didn't get Carson there sooner, he is finally having the happy, fun experience I remember having in elementary school!
