Going to school 2,969 miles away

There are 23 school days left of elementary school for Pia and Isabella. Finals will soon be part of their days (Bella has already started her finals) and after that it’s mostly wrapping up eight years at Saint Catherine’s.

As mentioned in an earlier post Pia decided on Burlingame High School early on. Isabella applied to several (other) schools and on April 6 Olivia, John and Isabella visited the last school on her list: Kent School in Connecticut. It was in instant love affair although it was still cold and fairly gray. But the campus was beautiful and Isabella had a great day following students around the school while Olivia and John spoke to teachers and counselors.

It will be a big change for all but Isabella is excited and everyone around her is supportive. She’ll be back only three times during the school year, but we will obviously stay in touch and update the blog with news from her time on the East Coast.
