We scheduled a tour of The Green School, (where we had enrolled the kids), on Friday, January 18th, two days after our arrival on Wednesday. We planned for the kids to start school on the following Monday which would give them a couple of days to acclimate and get over their jet lag. Based on the pictures and videos of the school, we thought we had a pretty good idea of what to expect. Yet, never having laid eyes on the place, I was more than a little anxious –what if we just flew half way around the world to send our kids to a giant dump? That would make for a long stay here. Luckily for us, the campus is mostly as promised, a lush, verdant oasis. Thank God!!
During our tour, Allie got excited about all the animals. Fletcher got excited about all the room to run around and kick balls. And I got excited about them going back to school, any school. They had been out for almost a month since winter break began in Los Angeles. We’re all getting a little sick of looking at each other. School starting will definitely be good for everyone.
