Right now, we know that if we're still in this area when Arthur gets old enough to start school, we're homeschooling. Hands down. Unless there's a major overhaul in the Florida school system, we don't want him going to school down here. As two people fully entrenched in the education system, for us to not want to put our kid into it, is saying something. So right now the plan is: still in Florida, homeschool indefinitely, leave Florida (hopefully back to Iowa), public school (since Iowa schools are AMAZING!)
Other than that, we haven't really thought beyond school. We're still trying to wrap our heads around a BABY lol
Preschool will likely be at our local catholic school and school in general think they will be going to our local charter school as our public schools are awful in our district.
College well they will definitely go to college. I won't let them get out of it. Its so necessary nowadays. I don't care where they go as long as they go.
As far as them getting married or grandkids...not really other than I want to be around to see both happen someday after they graduate from college and have their own careers.
preschool? At our Catholic Church. Lily went there, Abri will start there in the fall, and once baby is around 3 he'll go a few days a week
Elementary school? Public school. The schools here are great. Lily is starting kindergarten this fall at one of the magnet schools that focuses on math, science, and engineering. With her accepted to the program, siblings are automatically accepted
College? Definitely. I would prefer a public university especially UNC Chapel Hill (where I went and several family members) if they can get in or if they want to go there.
Weddings? This is one time I am thankful this baby is a boy!! We've got 2 weddings to pay for already, so this will be nice to be on the other side
Grandkids? I'm glad we had kids young so that when/if our kids have kids of their own, we won't be too old to play. I hope I won't be that mom that bugs her kids about having babies
