3 Schools

Vance applied to the same school that Myshel goes to, The school of International Studies at Meadowbrook. That's quite a title, huh. It's a lot like a magnet school. It concentrates on international and military studies. It's much smaller than all of the other public middle schools out here and we've loved having Myshel there. It's acceptance is on a lottery system. They basically take all the qualified applicants and "draw" 100 names and they're the lucky ones that get to go there. We've been hoping and praying that Vance would be one of those names "drawn". Unfortunately, he wasn't. We found out this week that he won't be going to Meadowbrook with Myshel. We're very disappointed. The school he'll be going to isn't a bad school, I just wanted something a little better for him. I also didn't want to have 3 kids in 3 different schools. That means, 3 different PTA's, 3 different activities that fall on the same nights, 3 different start times. Yep, that's right, schools have staggered start times out here, so Myshel will start school at 7:30AM, Vance will start school at 8:15AM and McKaylie will start at 9AM. That could prove to be interesting. Vance's school is also the furthest away, which I also don't like. There are some benefits to him going there. In many ways it could prove to be great; so, I guess we'll try and concentrate on the positive things.
