Once we got the party behind us it was time to shift focus to Lauren and school. As I mentioned in my last post we made a huge decision for Lauren's schooling and she is attending an online charter school (Texas Virtual Academy at Southwest). Since this was our first week I decided to tell you how it has been. The few weeks before school started I went through all the books that were sent to us and tried to get prepared. We couldn't see the lessons before this week so I couldn't fully prepare and I felt it. We had to do an "Introduction to online learning" video for each subject before it would give us our lessons. I felt a little lost a times and pretty disorganized but it got better each day and I feel really good about the school.
Lauren has done really good this week with staying on task and dealing with my craziness of not knowing which book we need and what I need to do. I have been so proud of her.
