We made it home (FINALLY). That is the longest drive! But, we will be making it again here shortly. We are going home to stay in December. It was a hard decision, but now a relief that it is made. My biggest loss will be my job that I dearly love! I am the school nurse at our local junior high. I have the same hours as my kids. I am able to attend every sporting event they are in (volleyball, basketball and cheerleading). I don't even have to pay at the home games because I am an employee. The school board and superintendent are aware that my son did not go on school property nor cut down any trees. He just dropped off the young man who did do the damage. For several years now, the seniors that have done the pranks have gotten off with paying for the damages. They have never been able to "punish" anyone because they had graduated. Not so this time, my son has become their target of "making an example" out of. They have even told me that. I see both sides of the argument. I know they need to stop the pranks. But the punishment does not fit the crime. My son would be expelled for half the school year and then be sent to the alternative school for the last half. He will not get to graduate with his class (if he is able to catch up on his expelled homework and graduate at all). He is not allowed on school property.
I will post pictures of my trip asap! I did enjoy my time there and feel a load taken off of my mind!
My name is Stephanie, married, was a mother of three until we added my great-niece to the mix. We are in the process of adopting her. Life is great, but we are considering moving to Garden City, Kansas this summer! This is just me ranting and raving about trying to raise kids today! Just when I thought I was about done - I have started all over again!
