    High School graduation is a long way from now. So many paths could open between now and then! You are only allowed to worry about the next 2 months - tops! The rest you post here or jot down and forget for now.

    There is this tendency to blame every bad thing that will ever happen to a gradeskipped kid on the gradeskip. So if the kids do hate her or it doesn't work out, you post here and we'll all brainstorm some ideas, and you'll try and see what works - that's life:Trust it.

    Hurray for you for having tried it and moving the mountain to get it!
    Love and More Love,

    Yay! You did it! So glad it went well. Deal with the problems that come up when they do, you just can't anticipate everything ahead of time.

    Awesome! Congratulations.

    I understand the worry, but you have really done your research and have based your request on objective evidence (honestly, they wouldn't have approved it if they were not confident also), I am sure things will work out fine.

    Great work, your kids are lucky to have you helping them learn!
