There are only a few days left of school before summer is thrust upon us. I am looking forward to the break from an institution that I find frustrating, and at times overwhelming. I was so relieved when Tessa first began high school and it looked as though we had found a school that was creative, academic, and nurturing. Three years in and there has been a lot of upheaval in the administration. Tessa only has one more year, but I am stressing over Tori and the next three years. I’m not sure if my standards are simply impossibly high, or if once again we need to look for another school. It is certainly a process I dread.
First and foremost I think we all need to take a step back and breathe before any decision is even considered. I think we need to put a little distance between recent events, and then reevaluate what will ultimately be best for everyone. Summer should be a time of relaxation and revitalization. I am hopeful that we can put things into perspective and move forward in a positive and rewarding way.
How about you? Do you have big summer plans?
