The Grand: Found out we got the place. Glorious! Three bedrooms, dining room, fully-teal-tiled 40s bathroom, yard, washer/dryer. Walkscore: 78, but please, compared to where we came from, that's like a 95. (The last place we lived was a 51.) It's got the great detailing like arched doorways, plate-glass window and a built-in ironing board that will never see the light of day. Mentally arranging furniture.
The Not So Grand: I've got a long way to go on the schooling. Hopeful.
The downright depressing: Forum discusses "bullying." Hide your children. This is the most un-sensationalistic, accurate discussion I've experienced on the subject. Click. It's worth a listen. If I had the number to call, I would have asked: Does bullying exist as often in private schools as it does in public? If not, why not?
