the best news ever!

We found out today that Aidan was offered admission to Carolina Friends School. To say we were all excited would be a gross understatement! His visit day was great. For more on that, click here. But we were not sure if there were any spots available in the Lower School. Here is Aidan when I told him the news.


It feels great to know that his days of worksheet learning and EOGs are done. Meaningful learning, here we come!
We celebrated with dinner at Southern Rail in Carrboro. Aidan was fascinated with their collection of HO scale trains. Oh, and the food was good too (you actually eat in a train car).


11 more days of 3rd grade. I can officially see the light at the end of the tunnel!
