It has been days since I climbed my way through the Go Ape adventure course and my body still aches from the thrilling accomplishment.

Our daughter wasn’t even a year old before we began to consider what options we had for her education in the Kansas City Public School system. At the time we assumed they would be slim. The knowledge that we lived in a city which had lost its accreditation gave us little hope for when the time came for Lily to go to school.
