Carters (7) - Round 18
But, he finally announced, "Of course, we would love to have them at Crumplebottom Academy."
Kent and Jeremy shared a glance. "S'ok," they both mumbled with their mouths full.
"Did you meet any new friends?" Sharon asked.
The boys just mumbled "no."
After they had been excused, Sharon looked at Anthony. "Do you think I made the right decision pulling them out of public school? Maybe I should've waited until they were teenagers!"
Anthony patted her hand. "They'll be just fine, Sharon. Don't worry!"
Kent nodded. "I know. Mom says it'll get better after we've been there awhile."
"But the teachers are so strict! And all the kids looked at me funny!"
"Don't do that!" Anthony said. "Give them a chance to settle in! The benefits far outweigh the drawbacks!"
"Are you sure that's the right thing to do?"
Anthony nodded, "Of course. As Education Minister, I know how things work in the education field. Going to private school will give them an edge in college and later in life!"
Sharon wrung her hands. "If you're sure..."
Anthony smiled and rubbed her shoulders. "I'm sure. Now quit worrying!"
Sharon felt the knots in her stomach untwist. "Really? You like it there?"
Kent shrugged. "Yeah, it's cool."
Oh thank God, Sharon thought as she felt the knots in her stomach untwist.
"See, I told you that you didn't need to worry."
Sharon shook her head. "I know! I feel so silly! I can't believe I was making myself sick over it!"
