The Verdict is In!

School board meeting or circus?  Seems like an obvious choice!  Given those two options, what child (or adult, for that matter) wouldn't choose to go to the circus?

Yes, the circus was in town, and Sierra had a free pass for the evening.  But the school board meeting was also scheduled for this evening, and the Board was deciding on my request for a leave of absence to hike the PCT with Sierra.  Although we reassured Sierra that the Board could make the decision whether she was at the meeting or not, she wanted to be there.

Sitting in the meeting while the Board debated our request, I had a sense of how a defendant must feel when the jury goes out to consider the verdict.   But in the end, the Board was very supportive.  The verdict is in:  we're hiking!
