We've hit a bunch of open houses and still a few more to attend. I'd highly rec. to my pals with kids to do the same. Whatever we thought we knew, we didn't.
Best Lesson Learned: The choice of a school for Henry should not be based on what we think we can or want to afford, or how much we liked the teachers, or how much we didn't like the clutter in a classroom, or how big the class size was or how much we thought we would like the other parents and kids at a particular school...it should be based on how well Henry will do there academically, socially and otherwise. The decision to put his needs above our likes and dislikes is a valuable lesson, especially for me. Thanks for the wisdom on that Jack.
Wish us luck! And special thanks to Malia and Brit for watching Lucy during these events. Although we love our little sister, we did not need her input. :)
