Yes.  The word was bittersweet.

Why, you may ask,  is going to school bittersweet?

Homeschooling for 14 years was a joy.  Choosing the curriculum that was best for my children was so good.  Being with my children and teaching them and building strong bonds was amazing.
The quiet pace was lovely.
It was peaceful, interesting, fun and cozy.

For me.

And that really did suit Emma too.

But the quiet aloneness does not really fit for Katie.
She loves the swirl of activities.
She is learning to work hard and read faster and schedule her time and respect authority.
Her school is a blessing.

But gosh...

Anytime she wants to come home for school....

I know just the math program to use.
