Hola!


After praying long and hard about Grace's schooling this fall we've finally come to a decision! This fall Grace will be attending Cordova Lane Elementary School a few blocks from our house. She was accepted into a program they call the "Spanish Magnet". After applying students are drawn at random to participate at either the Cordova Lane school or a school in Folsom (a 25 minute drive from here). It was our prayer that if she was chosen for the program and it was at the school near our house that we would embrace the opportunity to be more a part of our community here in Rancho Cordova. I was very conflicted between keeping her home and sending her to Kindergarten this year. I feel God has truly answered my prayer and now I pray He will provide me peace and strength as I send my sweet baby to school. I will be in her classroom two days a week and I'm excited to meet her new little friends and their families. She's such a social butterfly and I know she will thrive at school.
She will be a part of a really great program where her teacher will be bi-lingual and will teach one hour a day in Spanish! This is a K-5 program that will expose children to oral fluency, reading and writing, traditions, customs, history and arts of Spanish speaking countries. We are very excited that Grace will have this opportunity. Now it will rest on our shoulders to follow up with learning along side our little Kindergartner so that we can reinforce her learning here at home! Please pray for us as we embark on this great adventure!
