Yesterday was Eli's first day of Kindergarten!!!
He got into a charter school and we couldn't be more excited.
His name was chosen in the lottery for a charter school in Oregon, and we thought it was pushing luck to get into two schools in one year, but we squeezed in.  He'd been number 10 on the waiting list all summer, and we got a call Friday afternoon that he was in.  It was a mad scramble to get their long list of school supplies and clothes ready over the weekend.  He has to wear any solid colored polo shirt and pants/shorts that are navy or tan cotton.  I love that the kids are dressing modest and clean, everyone looked so nice on the first day of school.  Starting in first grade he'll learn Yamaha technique keyboard, Spanish and advanced Science.  It goes up to 8th grade, with only one class per grade in the school, so it's pretty small, which I like.  I'm so excited for him and all of the opportunities this school will provide.  I think we're off to a good start!
