Everyone knows parenting is full of difficult decisions. I always hope and pray we are making the right choices. Last month we made the very difficult decision to remove Harlyn from public middle school. She was struggling with all aspects of middle school. After an entire semester of crying, complaining and failing most of her classes (including Chorus) we enrolled her in a virtual charter school.
SC Calvert Academy has turned out to be a blessing and a challenge all at the same time.
Blessings: Harlyn likes it, she is doing really really well, evenings are better for the entire family.
Challenges: changes in my schedule, Harlyn is ALWAYS with me, NO SNOW days so catching up can be hard.
I read about how difficult the transition could be. Most parents said that after a semester or so things settled down and a routine would follow. I personally cannot stand not having a routine. We are working hard to stick to a strict schedule. I am working hard at playing so many roles at one time. Harlyn is working hard at being a good student.
Some days she works beside me.
Some days she works in her "office".
Some days she works in the sun of the living room floor.
Wish us luck in this adventure!
