Dave and I both felt really good about letting Corina choose this year whether she wanted to go back to the Academy for 8th grade or if she would like to go to Franklin Middle School. Akayla had a tough year last year with most of the good kids leaving and being stuck with kids that were not nice and who were doing a lot of bad things. We didn't want Corina to have the same problem. The only worry Corina had about changing schools was that she wouldn't be ahead academically when she started high school, but we told her she could be in honors classes and she would be fine! She is loving school so far. She says it's a little hard being the only new girl in the school, but I know she'll get to know people really quickly. She has friends from our ward that go and that she gets to see a lot, and friends that used to go to the Academy.
