School Woes
What do we do? Veronica will finish Kindergarten (at home) this school year. We will head back to Atlanta for her to be tested at the end of the school year so we have the appropriate records for her year.

So, what's the problem? Well, we just don't know what to do about her for next school year. It wouldn't be a big deal for her to just go into 1st grade here, but the problem is her age. She will only be 5 at the end of August. Florida requires that she be in Kindergarten at age 5. So, we thought we'd look into private school. I found out that the school at our church is phenomenal! But (you saw that but coming, didn't you?), the school requires her to be 6 to enter 1st grade.

So, what do we do? Do we look for a different private school? One that doesn't have the stellar reputation that we know is available in the area? Do we say she goes into Kindergarten anyway (even though I feel she won't be challenged enough or grow to her abilities if she is held in Kindergarten for another school year)? Do I homeschool her for another year and then reevaluate what to do with her for 2nd grade?

If I homeschool her for 1st grade, we will also get her involved in some other activities with other children. I am currently looking for a local homeschool association in order to connect with some other homeschooling families and find out what programs are available in the area with museums and such.

I just don't know. Any suggestions?
