I have to say I am very proud of Claire and her bravery today. Today she made a decision that wasn't easy to make. It's been weighing heavily on her mind for months and she didn't know what to do. It was a decision between two middle schools for next year.
She could choose to go to our home middle school with most of her elementary school friends or she could choose to go to the school which offers the International Baccalaureate program. If she chooses the IB program it would take her away from many of her elementary school friends. But the IB program has many of the aspects of academic life that would suit her to a tee. She would thrive there, immersed in all the school has to offer.
And today, my sweet, baby girl made a very brave decision. She decided on the IB program. I'm proud of her and her courage. It's not easy to leave the familiar and venture out into an unknown. She's knows our home school. She knows her friends. She knows what to expect academically at our home middle school. But she is brave enough to leave the familiar and go after a challenge. And for that I am most proud.
Oh, for the love of my children....
