Location, Location, Location...

When we decided to move from the "big city" to raise the girls in suburbia the deciding factor had more to do with proximity to relatives than anything else. It just so happened that the chosen suburb has excellent public and private schools for our children to choose between and at the time of our move we were committed to the private school....... which as you can see from this shot taken from our driveway was VERY conveniently CLOSE!!! We loved the close knit student body and the fact that there was no discussions needed about what to wear every morning...not to mention the lack of carpool participation! Then, as you read on my blog, during the spring we had cause to remove Mari from the private school and send her to public school. It was all good and so we made a new commitment to the public school system for both girls. So imagine our pleasure at finding this in our lawn this morning...... Such a small gesture but it means all the world to a little girl worried about starting at a new school in a couple more hours!!! Not only did she get this sign planted to welcome her BUT she also received a postcard from her new teacher!!! A lovely note of introduction that welcomed her to the third grade with promises of lots of interesting new things to learn. Just little tokens but sooooooo much more than we EVER received from the private school and plenty big enough to make us sooooooooooo happy with our decision.

  1. wow, that's something. I've never heard of anything like that happening before. I wonder if it's particular to that school, or whether all the schools in the school district do that. Good luck to both girls as they begin new beginnings.
