Since then there have been 75 days (4 in China with just us; 13 in China with a new sister; 2 in the air and 56 at home), no two the same!
But tomorrow will be the first day my son will spend more time out of my sight than in. It's bittersweet! On one hand I believe he can thrive in school if he applies himself; on the other I'm concerned about the influences he doesn't need. He's a very social kid and loves attention! He's the only one of my Krew who's looking forward to being in school all day. He will take 4 hours of ESL, computer, math and PE.
We've suspected for some time that he hasn't attended school for at least three years, and last night he told us he remembers being in 5th grade - that would be about three years ago :( He's been eager to do Rosetta Stone on the computer over Christmas break. Who knew the power behind: "No English, no school. No English, school at home with Mom."
We have no idea what this week will hold...except a LOT of prayer!
