    Default Registered Ella for her new school today! Yay!

    It is an art/tech school and it *seems* wonderful.

    She will start soon, very soon!

    Yay!

    It is a long long drive for us 5 days, but well worth it.

    Great news. Is it private? Public? near your new house?

    I am glad!

    I drive 30 miles RT 2x a day to take my kid to a fabulous school. It's worth every minute.

    Hi,
    the school is about 15 miles each way and it is in the next city over. The 2nd largest city in Oregon and it is in one of the largest school districts. We are still house hunting. The main issue though is that we are trying to ready our house to sell. With Ella home all of the time lately we cannot get anything done! We are cleaning, and painting and getting rid of 10 years worth of stuff but wow, we do have a ways to go. Our finances are such that we cannot afford two mortgages at one time, so this one has to go first before we purchase a new one. There are some AMAZING deals out there right now. But that also means, our house lost $50K in value just this year. (argh!)
    Anyway, the most important thing to us was to have our girl back in school, in a routine, and have her learning and hanging with kids. It is just us three here...and the neighbor kids who are at school all day...so she really needs to be with kids.
    The school has PE 2x a week and Music 2x a week and library day one day a week....they have 3 gyms including a rock climbing wall, a laptop for every 2 students to share, a state of the art music recording studio, and the school goes up until 8th grade!
    It is kind of a mix between public and private. It is a public charter type school that seems like a private school if that makes any sense.

    WOW!!!

    Sounds like a fabulous place. I wish there was a place around here like that where I could send my children.
