MOMtor Monday – Why my kids are at private school

Happy Monday morning friends!  It’s my MOMtor Monday and I’m over at Mothering From Scratch.

I’m sharing why my kids are at private school.  It’s part of a larger discussion about school, homework, and how different choices are right for different families.   I love it because it’s absolutely NOT a mommy war thing.  How refreshing is that!

On Monday, The Orlando Sentinel featured an article titled SCHOOL CAR LINES DRIVE MANY PARENTS CRAZY, IT SEEMS.

I was quoted in the article.  Squeee.  I haven’t read all the links… yet.  

I figured it was time to revisit the car line. [Read more…]
