Well, we have had two classes at the new school and I am very impressed with things so far. The GC likes it and is learning new things already. They seem very organized and, as we say in the Navy, ‘hit the deckplates running.’ On the second night of class, the teacher gave us a school decal window sticker for the car… I know, you are saying, so what’s the big deal? We were with the other school for four years, never had the opportunity to buy, never mind have given to us, any logo gear for the school. I offered to make the old school a website and they said no, the new school has one already, and did I tell you they have only been open for about 2 weeks? This is not a slam, at least not intentionally, on the old school, just a positive endorsement for the new. We have only had 2 classes.
And sideways smiles… ? It was bound to happen. We ran into some of the old school Moms at a local sandwich shop and we caught that awkward smile and hello. It was friendly enough but there was something in there that said, ‘you traitor’ or maybe, ‘is the grass really greener?’ It was hard to tell.
Anyway, another practice on Sunday will end our first week at the new place. I assume we will fall into the routine soon enough and these updates will end. So far though, I think we made the right decision.
On a side note, I had a dream that the GC’s old teacher was a school teacher for me and I was dreading going to the class. Obviously I am harboring some guilt…. damn Catholic upbringing ;)
