as promised and goodbye

I told you I had big news.

At the beginning of this month I quietly withdrew the youngest from the school system and began homeschooling. Make no mistake, though --- I truly believe in our school system, and the oldest will stay in it.

Because I have several friends who are current or former professional educators who have lovingly agreed to advise me along the way, I have begun a separate (and rather boring, I fear) blog detailing our days. I invite you all to visit me there: Schooling George is at http://schoolinggeorge.blogspot.com

That said Life in Forsyth will go dark for the foreseeable future. My goal is for George to return to WSFCS by middle school, and I reserve the right to fire up the LiF engines at that time.

I've had so much fun here. Thank you.

I am hard pressed to pick a favorite.

The oldest, via text when I threatened to buy one for him: no mom wow.

(The youngest just wanted to know if they had an Aztec Jaguar Warrior one, because they are "much much deadlier than ninjas.")

Also: exciting announcement coming soon! WATCH THIS SPACE.

1st in NC, 8th in USA


While the youngest's Tourette Syndrome doesn't call for a wheelchair*, I'm still so stinking proud of Winston-Salem's place on that list.

*He's got movement issues, mind, but they are more awkward-baby-giraffe-ish, which is to say his limbs don't always do what he expects -- or wants -- them to do.
