Why is there always a catch?

I met with the private school (the principal and admission director) we are trying to get J into in the fall.  They both were very nice and going on and on as to how great my son is – which I already knew.  🙂   As we spent some time discussing which level they think J is best suited for (they don’t do grades by age only… it is based on developmental level and they group grades), I brought up that we are applying for financial aid and that will determine if we can send him there in the fall.  GUESS WHAT I FOUND OUT…  we have to pay the registration fee before our financial aid application will be looked at.  One may ask well how bad can it be?  Oh about $3500.00 – non refundable.  So, when you ask and they tell you the annual tuition is $18,500.00 (which is what J’s will be – hence needing the financial aid) they really should just add the reg fee to the tuition and call it a day.

In other news, C turned 9 months old on the 10th.  🙂

*  she began comando crawling on Friday

*  just today she began really talking up a storm
