And so we homeschooled. Up until 13 years of age, my younger son never went to school. I loved our homeschooling life.
But then my kid said he wanted to go to high school. I doubted the wisdom of it, remembering my own struggles. But off he went. It was a rough start. Then on Valentines Day last year, he told me about what had happened at school that day.
While everyone was in class, someone put a post-it note on every single locker in the school:
He told me, "It was dope." And I believed him.
I'm so glad my son gets to be a part of a place where this kind of thing can happen.
