We are in the middle of the admission process to send our 5yo daughter to Catholic school next year. Is it silly for me to be concerned that she won't have close neighborhood friends because she goes to a different school? The closest Catholic school is 14 miles away. We may move one day, but we need to be close to my parents who are old and need our help. I know times are so different, but some of my happiest childhood memories are the times spent with the kids from the neighborhood. But, that was back when all of our moms locked us out of the house until dinner! That doesn't happen anymore, unfortunately. One more thing, I have just started reading The Well Trained Mind by Susan Wise Bauer, so homeschooling is something we have started to think about. Thanks, I look forward to your advice!
