So far behind!

Last week we pulled mutt out of school so I had to get all the paper work filled out for that and find something for him to take. That is all squared away now and his books should be here Monday!!! I hope/think we did the right thing. For those of you who don't know we home schooled the boys for a very long time. I had never planned on doing that..as a matter of fact my cousin was home schooling her girl and my mom ask me if I was going to the boys NO WAY, I could never do that. Mutt started kindergarten and all was well. I was really looking forward to the next year when Daniel would start too. Well, that year things did not go well at all. Daniel didn't want to go to school and he was afraid of the folding tables in the cafeteria (they will eat me!!?)...silly fear, I giggled. I never knew just how really afraid he was and what he would do to avoid it. One day his class was on the way to the lunch room and when they turned he kept going straight...he ran away from school. His teacher did not see him but the office secretary did. He made it to the highway and was running down the yellow line. How scary! Thankfully the secretary was able to flag down a car, jump in, and chase him down. There was another car following my little dude down the road straddling the yellow line with her flashers on. Thank God they were there for him. And it was so strange..I KNEW this, I have no idea how but this thought popped into my head (I bet he is running down the road right now and I said a little prayer for him) I got the gate closed and came in to the phone ringing telling me to come pick up my son he had ran away and they had him locked up in the office. OHMYgosh can you believe that!!? Then the school wanted us to sign a waiver saying they were NOT responsible for him since he was a "known" runner. Ummmmmm no way was I going to do that, that would be like signing his life away. So I felt I had no choice but to home school him. We left mutt in school and man this home school stuff wasn't hard at all! It was actually easy and fun!!!?? So the next year we pulled mutt out too. Daniel was home schooled K-9 and mutt 2-9. Last year DH decided they HAD to go to school no ifs, ands, or buts after all buggy dude was already there so off they went. They both were honor roll students but mutt hated it. Daniel LOVED it!!! It was going to be another year of deep hate so we pulled him out. He will still be doing his AP classes through a correspondence school... Man that hurt the credit card but I want him to be excited about learning again and he seems to be!! He is really looking forward to his books and going at his own pace again. Oh if you are wondering about BD he was home schooled k-3 and that was TERRIBLE!!!! He would hide his books, write that his name was Bob, do any page other than the page I told him to do so enough was enough and he was put in school. We made him do 3rd grade over there because I was sure after all the struggles he would be behind.

Running down the road on the yellow line! OMG, Joy, how horrifying is that??!! Though it makes for a good story now.... Thank God for that secretary!

OMG Joy! Our teachers walk in the middle of the line and constantly walk in circles checking back and forth! LOL Our school is also fenced in and there is only 1 entrance during school hours now; but I can totally see your little dude hitting the road...bless his heart! Thank goodness the secretary saw him and he was safe! I've thought of homeschooling, but honestly I do NOT have the patience for that so I tip my hat off to you!

Oh how scary! K wandered away from school last year and she was a couple of blocks away before they figured it out but they're quite far from a big road. If they'd tried to get me to sign a waver they're have heard some rather nasty words for sure! You're so much more patient!
