I have mentioned on my instagram account about my trouble in deciding which type of school I want for my kids; public, charter or home. In reading, researching, and talking to other moms about the different paths I am still left uncertain. I can see pros and cons to each path. On of the cons for a school that I am considering is their supposed lack of a good playground. I know that might sound very petty but I am a big proponent of kids playing and being kids much as possible. The thought of them going to a school that did not provide a great place for them to run, swing, climb, and be free was a turn off for me. That was until my girls discovered this amazing fallen tree along the beach. They instantly began to run, swing, climb and be free. It made me realize that kids will be kids no matter what. They will naturally seek out things to explore, play on or hang from. Furthermore nature provides more for children than any playground could.
Honestly, I feel kind of silly now being so nervous about something like that, but school is a BIG deal to me!! I think I have spent more hours thinking about school than I have thought about anything else just about. Am I alone in this? Please tell me I am not. School just stresses me out so much! Feel free to add any input you might have on this matter!
