I know from time to time I have talked about the kids next door and lack of cooking abilities and that they are home schooled.
Well, after much consideration from their parents, they have decided to send them to public school. It is not that they do not trust themselves, but they started looking and listening to their kids. The older ones really wanted to interact with ones their own age and no friends their own age. Everybody was much younger.
The mother was also handling the burden of most of the home schooling of teaching 37 classes a day at multiple different class levels and with another one entering kindergarten in the fall that would jump to 42 per day.
Then there was the factor that at the rate of the oldest three current speed of education, they would be ready to graduate high school at age 14 and graduate college at 18. The parents were brought up in the public school system and really started wondering how right this was for their own kids.
So today we now have one enrolled in middle school and three enrolled in elementary. I have been playing a key role as to who would work well with whom in what class and on the bus as the bus has assigned seats.
I got the butter, clams, shrimp, scallops, and corn...so where is my lobster
