Heard a little more about the court situation on Friday. The state's attorney wants me to plead guilty to one charge of 'not sending child to school', and he'll drop the other charge. (two kids, two charges). He's only going to ask for $54 in court costs, no fines, and he said he'll take all of the suspended jail time stuff off the table completely. He's requiring that we either enroll the kids in school within our district or provide a valid homeschooling certificate. Our exemption has been held up since this all started, so hopefully they'll get it to the school board and grant us the exemption once they've been given the 'all clear'.
My attorney was out on Friday, but his secretary forwarded me the letter from the s.a. I'll be in touch with my attorney on Monday and we'll proceed from there.
Feeling so much better about this, but still want it signed, sealed, delivered and DONE!!!
I've been blessed with incredible kindness from my friends and family, even strangers, through all of this. I love you all from the bottom of my heart! Thank you for lending me your strength and compassion when mine was wearing thin! I'll keep ya posted...
