Back to School

Since having school-aged children, we've always lived on the East Coast and in states that started school around Labor Day.  Now that we've moved to Colorado, they do things differently here--like starting school mid-August!  To me, that's crazy, especially since I always told my oldest "you never have to worry about going to school on your birthday".  Little did I realize that she'd start school the day after her birthday!  Next year I'm worried she'll start ON her birthday!!  
This school year, I am doing something completely different than we have ever done in the past.  I will be sending my oldest to traditional school and homeschooling my 7th grader as well as doing pre-k with my youngest!  I've never sent one to school and kept one home, but due to bullying and not getting the education with her learning, we felt it best to go back to homeschool. 
On Tuesday, my other daughter started her first day of 10th grade at the local high school.  Unlike her sister, she was able to stand her ground at her new school.  She has received a special scholarship at her high school that allows her to take AP and Honors classes that count towards college credits, as well as the local community college is bringing in professors to teach about 10 students in the school, giving them college credits.  When she graduates, she will not only graduate with a high school diploma, but she will graduate with an associates degree and a $16k scholarship to finish her bachelors at the local community college. We are very excited for this opportunity and her drive to do so well in school!
