Hi! It’s me! Lily!

So as you know, I (and my sister and brother) are homeschooled right now.  I’m not sure I understand exactly why.  All I know is that one day we were doing one of those zoom calls, and Sabby was listening in.  The teacher said something about race, and Sabby, well, went off.  We were pulled out very quickly.  Honestly, I don’t feel like we missed anything from that experience, because it was just zoom calls.

But apparently some politicians in Texas have been doing their politicianey stuff, and because of that, Dave and Sabby are considering putting us into private school next year.  If that pans out, of course.  They sat us down this evening and asked us what we thought of that idea.

David didn’t like it.  Of course he didn’t.

Beth was kind of hesitant, but I think it might be good for her, to meet some girls her age that aren’t her old friends.

I… I don’t know what to think.  It might be fun!  I’ve wanted to get into sports and there aren’t really any sports worth speaking of for me to get involve in right now!  So I don’t know.  Would it be fun?  Maybe.  It’d be better than public school, or so Sabby tells us.  The schools here are pretty good, but she does not trust them.  I asked her why, and she tried to explain it to me, but I just don’t get it.

Oh well.

So we won’t enroll until next year if we do that.  I’ve just got a year to go before I graduate anyway, so it’s not too big a deal for me.  Beth’s got a few more years.  But we’ll see how it turns out.  Maybe it’ll help me get into college?  Do I even want to?  I don’t know.  At least I know I can afford it.

Anyway, another curve ball, but this one will take a while to become anything.

Oh oh oh.  Remember how I said that Sabby thought David needed something to drill some lessons into him that she hasn’t been able to?  Well…  David’s going to summer camp.  I looked it up – it seems fun, but there’s an emphasis on discipline.  And computer and phone use is heavily regulated.  He’s not a happy camper.  Pardon the pun.

Love you all!!! ❤
