On June 1st of this year (2017), Ziedite, who is now exactly 5 feet tall, was promoted to high school. The homeschooling program we had been using for last three years, CHEP, had a beautiful promotion ceremony for her and in the fall
she will be starting high school.
What will she do next since she can't continue the CHEP program? She went back and foth staying homeschooled or going to Rancho Alamitos High School, and she chose the latter. We had to
get her vaccinated in order to attend, so that was quite an ordeal since I stopped vaccinating her when she was 2 and a half. After realizing that California no longer offers religious and personal belief exemptions and that getting medical exemption is extremely
hard (though we did try!), she ended up having to get 5 required shots; definitely not the "recommended" ones. Her immune system was depressed for a while, but thankfully we know now what to do to help her body restrengthen: detox with the help of essential
oils, lots of water and cut way down on sugar intake for a while.
Keep us in your prayers as we transition into Ziedite's high school years.
