Last year at this time, I was tearing my hair out, in tears trying to figure out where Isaac was going to school for kindergarten. He had just come out of an amazing integrated preschool, where he had been for 3 years. I wasn't handing my crazy boy off to just any school. I had only a few weeks left to make a choice. I had options for Isaac to go to private school, public school or even homeschool.
I knew what Isaac needed. I knew he needed a teacher who would love him for his sillies, accept his twitches, and not put up with any of his garbage. Because of this, I immediately ruled out homeschool. I knew if we did that, it would be the biggest mistake I've made in a long time. Isaac wouldn't learn much, because we'd butt heads all of the time and we'd pretty much spend the day miserable. Plus, Isaac is too social a creature to even think of just teaching him at home.
So, in reality, we were down to private and public school.
I wasn't sure of either, but I had to pick one. I had to do what was right for us as a family.
