Next Monday the district is sending out letters about who got into their specialty programs. I entered Beth into the lottery for a TAG school, and I entered both Beth and Matt into the lottery for a charter school. The charter school is my top pick for both of them. I feel like we've been waiting forever, so I'm glad it's coming to a close.

Will they tell you either way or just if they get in?

Still nothing! I have never been a patient person and this is bugging me. I hope it comes today so I can put it behind me and enjoy the weekend. I'm not going to be heartbroken if they don't get in, as I already have the homeschool stuff I want picked out. If they don't get in I can go ahead and order it. I just like to plan ahead.

The letters came today...a nice two weeks late. Neither one got in. I seriously hate these lotteries and the way we all have to fight over the few slots at decent schools. In any case, we are going to be homeschooling in the fall.

So sorry. That does stink. I haven't heard from that school for Erin. The letters get mailed tomorrow. I should hear something this week. I don't have high hopes though.

Good luck Shari! I really hope she gets the scholarship.

We still haven't heard back from the TAG school for Beth. I called today, and they said those letters will be out this week. I'm not even sure I'm interested anymore though. If I'm homeschooling one, I'd like to homeschool them all. I think the schedule would be too crazy otherwise.

Sorry. Maybe you'll get your wish, though. I think you'll really enjoy homeschooling all of them.
