It's official: We are now the parents of a "school-ager". Yesterday, Pre-K started with a few smiles, followed by tears, but the smiles returned quickly once he started to meet his classmates.
Though he'd been at an education-based learning facility for the past 2 1/2 years, I think because it was a new school and we made such a big deal out of it, he felt like he was taking a new step.
He must've had conficting feels because all summer he has been asking when was he starting his new school but a few night the past 3 weeks he's woken up saying he doesn't want to grow up, because he won't fit in our house. I'm not sure what that is all about, but hopefully once he get's settled the bad dreams will stop.
I am excited about the level of involvement the parents have at this school, both at the school and with each other. From hosting the Fall Festival to have monthly luncheons, book clubs and support groups around the city, there are a lot of things to choose from. You know Book Club was the first thing I signed up for, but I also volunteered to help in the classroom and library.
I am excited about the projects that I'll be able to do throughout the year for the kids, the teachers and the school. Come back to see what fun things we've got planned!
Let the adventure begin!!
Until our next cup of tea ...
