New School for Akello / thanksgiving recap
So the big news is that Akello now goes to Hawthorne Montessori school. He's been going since november first. Now i know what your thinking. "wha wha???"
I know. I know.
The whole reason Theresa started Mornings in the nest was so that she could stay home with him, still be an educator, still make money, not have to pay for childcare.
Well, we were forewarned that Akello might not do well in an environment such as this once he reached two years old. It was stressfull for mama and akello both. Imagine if you would having to share mama and all your work materials! Theresa knew that it was time for akello to go to a seperate program as much as it pained our hearts and pocketbooks. The only thing was, would we find a school that we saw "worthy" of our standards that was "worthy" of our pocketbook AND was close to home? We obviously did, but not before checking all options in the north part of town, and there are about 3 to five. Hawthorne Montessori was the only school that had that vibe, that felt right. and upon further inspection and experience has proven to be an awesome school with awesome faculty. Its on the pricey side, but you will know were that money went. Akello is loving it!
We went everywhere it seems this thanksgiving. To theresas parents in kileen, to my parents in san marcos, to my sisters in san marcos. here are some pics. and video
