Today we signed the lease on a rental out in the sunset. Upon returning home, my first phone call was to the charter school we're trying to get the kids into, to let them know I'd be faxing over the lease agreement, demonstrating residency. She was very kind and I was able to learn that they receive 5-10 applications per year for 1st grade and 80 per year for K (for 20 spots!).
Yesterday we went to the "interview" at the independent school we're also trying for, which is essentially the private version of the charter. I'm hopeful that something good will come of all this.
There are some feelings of sadness around our leaving San Mateo. We love the town and the ease of the lifestyle, and we love our house.
more to come...
