FRIDAY STARS – Your Weekly Must Knows 03/03/17

Friday Stars.13
Life:

Last Friday afternoon, I learned even more about what was happening at my son’s private school.  So my husband and I pulled him out of his Kindergarten class.  In the middle of the year.  What was once a hard decision, became a hell of a lot easier once we learned even more facts that twisted my stomach and is still making me cry to this day.  My heart breaks for those children that were hurt by others their own age, and at the same time I can’t be thankful enough that nothing happened to my little boy.  Okay…….. *wipes tears from eyes and takes deep breath*.  So, he had his first day at public school this last Tuesday.  Oh my gosh, I was SO nervous for him.  I didn’t even sleep the night before, and the whole day he was at school I was a bundle of nerves.  And when I picked him up, he was so happy.  It’s only been a few days, but each day he tells me all about what happened and the new friends he’s making.  I couldn’t be more thankful and grateful that this has worked out better than I ever could have imagined.  While there is a slight hiccup, he’s exhausted because of the longer school days, I’m hoping that will get easier in the coming weeks.  His safety and his happiness are my top priorities, and I’m so thankful that we have found both of these at his new school!

In case you aren’t familiar with our Friday Star Posts, we like to take a look at what’s happened around here in the last week, what’s coming up that we are excited about and anything else that we may have to share!

♥ Enjoy!

Just Finished and Loved:

There weren’t any books, that we read in the last week, where we loved every single tiny detail. But here’s one that I truly enjoyed:

4 Stars:
The Vincent Boys: Extended and Uncut (The Vincent Boys #1) by Abbi Glines → Jen’s Review

 

PS – Chelsea loved A Conjuring of Light (Shades of Magic #3) by V.E. Schwab, but her baby girl has been a little rough on her lately.  She’s hoping to write a full review!  And just a heads up – less than 30 days till their baby girl should arrive, YAY! 🙂

Reading Next:

death and the girl next door darynda jonesDeath and the Girl Next Door (Darklight #1) by Darynda Jones

Ten years ago, Lorelei’s parents disappeared without a trace. Raised by her grandparents and leaning on the support of her best friends, Lorelei is finally beginning to accept the fact that her parents are never coming home. For Lorelei, life goes on.
High school is not quite as painful as she thinks it will be, and things are as normal as they can be. Until the day the school’s designated loner, Cameron Lusk, begins to stalk her, turning up where she least expects it, standing outside her house in the dark, night after night. Things get even more complicated when a new guy—terrifying, tough, sexy Jared Kovach—comes to school. Cameron and Jared instantly despise each other and Lorelei seems to be the reason for their animosity. What does Jared know about her parents? Why does Cameron tell Jared he can’t have Lorelei? And what will any of them do when Death comes knocking for real?

  1. Yay, baby on the way! Send Chelsea all the blogosphere’s best wishes 😀 And I’m so glad you are at peace with your decision about switching to public school. It sounds like your son is adjusting really well. What a blessing! I think I’ll go read your last review right now…

    • Thank you, she’s soooooo close! I can’t wait to see pictures of her!
      He adjusted so much better than I ever could have imagined. I worried for nothing lol. Isn’t that always the case. 😉

  2. I’m sorry your family had to go through that. I hope your son is happy and loves his new school. Congrats to Chelsea on her soon to be little addition! 🙂

    • Thank you, Jess! It’s so wrong when you feel that your child is no longer safe at school. Thankfully he loves his new school, so I’m beyond ecstatic and thankful! ♥

  3. I can’t imagine having to go through what you’ve been dealing with with your son’s school. Obviously I don’t know the details, but it sounds like this has been a really painful experience all around.

    • It has. I’m just so grateful he loves his new school and that he has friends, that he already knows, there. That private school has been around forever and has always had the most amazing reputation. But there’s a family that’s been hired to work there and their children are horrific. Their children are physically hitting, bullying and inappropriate touching with threatening afterwards to other children. They would have been expelled at a public school, but that’s not happening here even though it’s a huge safety issue. A teacher has left along with me and other parents pulling their kids because of this family. And that’s just the tip of the iceberg, there’s so much more. Thankfully it’s going to the state, licensing, CPS etc and hopefully something will be done.
