    Default Update for Highlands Latin Fredericksburg, VA

    This is a hard post to write, but the Highlands Latin Cottage School in Fredericksburg is closing due to a change in our family's location. We are moving out of the state of Virginia, and therefore have had to decide to close.

    We had a fantastic first year of classes with our Latin teacher, Alicia, and it was a joy to get to meet new families in the community. The Memoria Press folks who helped us get started were all excellent to work with, and made the process as streamlined as possible. Starting a cottage school can feel like a momentous task, but it really wasn't. I encourage anyone who is interested in a cottage school to contact Ryan Weston at Memoria Press to talk with him about what is possible for your area. And no matter how long you are open, you can be a blessing to others - case in point!

    AMDG,

    Sarah,
    I am sorry to hear that HLS Fredericksburg will not resume, because you did such a great job launching that effort.

    However, I must comment on the news in your signature - congratulations!!!

    Thanks! Yes, LOTS of changes! Prayers for a healthy wee one would be very much appreciated!

    And here's hoping we end up getting some Illini out of these life-changing decisions!

    Yep! We will do a brief stint in Memphis, which cuts our drive home to family in half, and then the hope is we will gradually inch closer - possibly even Chicago-area eventually.

    Family was getting older, the timing seemed right, all the pieces were fitting too perfectly to ignore. Thankful for many answered prayers!

    I probably would not have caught it, but because it is the "quiet" board, your name and "Update" peaked my interest! If it was a more active board, it would have been posted and then gone...

    Congratulations, Sarah! The Ryans told me your news when they returned from HEAV, but they swore me to secrecy. I'm so happy for you! And we don't have a school in Memphis. Ahem ...

    I just saw this! What an exciting time for your family! You will be very missed, I was so blessed by the Spring Event you held. It was just the perfect bit of extra inspiration to finish the year! Praying for your new little bundle, and for your family.
