My kid really wants to go to this school. It's not because of his friends. Most of them are going to public school. It's not because of a girl. It's because he feels this school would give him a great academic base and would jump start his education.
How do you argue with that?
(Also, where did this kid come from? Education was the last think my husband and I were thinking about when we were his age!)
So, we are taking a leap of faith. We found out some financial assistance/scholarship money is available. We have applied for it, and things are looking good for him. He is enrolling in the private high school.
As a parent I have learned to go with my gut. I feel in my heart that this is the place my son is supposed to be. The school he goes to now has been a tremendous blessing for our family, and I hope that this new school will be the same.
I could really use some prayers and positive thoughts. This money for school would be the answer to our prayers.
