Six down, six to go

Today marks a milestone in my child’s life.  She has now completed half of her educational years.

Today my baby graduates from the sixth grade and grammar school.  It’s been a long, tedious and at times heart-wrenching journey for not only my daughter, but us, her parents.  Especially this year.  We started out the school year doing virtual school at home.  Although it may be good for some, it was not for us.  Fortunately we chose to go back to the brick and mortar school before we got too far in.  It was the right decision.

My thanks go out to the principal, teachers and staff at EBES.  Without you we would never had made it through these past seven years.  This school is the gem of our regional school district.  Although my daughter will encounter many other schools in the rest of her educational tenure, EBES will always remain as the best.

Thanks for all you go through to help educate our children.


I'm a writer. I'm also a wife and a parent who works too much and lives too little. In addition to writing I also love to read, listen to music, travel, cook, I enjoy looking for bargains at flea markets or thrift stores, Christmas, football and of course writing! How did I come up with the title of my blog? Two things: 1. I live in New England (duh) and 2. Canadian singer Alan Frew once arrogantly told me to "get a New England life"--again--DUH! I already HAVE one!
