We were in such a different place about schooling a few months back, and I still preach that every family needs to find what's right for them (duh). I appreciate the idea of unschooling, public schooling, parochial schools, whatever. But I simply am ecstatic about this place, and I can't wait till Easton can walk through those doors too.

After many years of the back and forth, in and out, here and there with decisions, I'm pleased to announce our total joy with sending Sylvia to the Soulard School. We love it. LOVE. And more importantly, she loves it. She has never once woken up with anxiety about going, she has never told us she had a bad day. Sure, there are hiccups every now and again, but overall it's a mutual admiration. It's such a cute, tiny place to be. Lots of support, from staff and parents, lots of comforting situations, lots of communication, and lots of drive to push forward in the thoughts regarding education. There have tables and mats, no desks, they have conversations and experiments, not homework, they eat, laugh and play together, no separations and alienation. Today was even ride your bike to school day. Awesome.
