Say It Isn't So


See that baby? That baby just got signed up for kindergarten today.  WHERE HAVE THE LAST 4 AND A HALF YEARS GONE?! How could my baby be going to kindergarten this fall? I know people say it all of the time how the years just fly by and now I'm starting to understand it. The first 3 years of his life? They went by extremely slow but now time is just flying. Brady has a late April birthday and I have agonized over if sending him this fall is the right decision or not. After preschool conferences last week I know academically he is definitely ready. Socially, I'm not as sure. He's a  sensitive kid and I worry he may get overwhelmed being in a huge class. He is fine with a group of kids for awhile (he's doing great with his Tues/Thurs 9-1 preschool) but he really likes his alone time too. There are so many options here in Colorado. Charter schools, Catholic schools, public schools, awesome homeschool networks, you name it!  With all of that in mind, we decided to enroll him in our neighborhood elementary school  (literally 1 minute away walking) and we're sending him half day (in this school district you pay if you want full day). We just pray we've made the right decision.  I know that he will mature a lot more in the next 6 months and he is just so, so excited to go the "big school" with the "big playground". So even though I want to keep him home forever, I have to do what is best and let him go.  I just know that I'm going to be an absolute mess come August 17th.

And this little princess? Yeah she just got signed up for preschool this fall too. Wahhh! She'll be 3 this May and has wanted to join Brady in preschool since she was ummmm 1 years old.  She is super social and the day we toured said, "Ok bye Mommy! I'm here to play with my friends." She's a little sass machine and I know she's just going to absolutely adore being "big" and going to school this September. 

 Now Mommy just needs to get on board with all of the changes coming this fall. That whole 2 mornings free a week though...that does sound nice! :)

Oh my goodness, so cute! Why do they have to grow up so fast! But how exciting too!

I've been putting off kindergarten registration! I can't do it! We did get the 3 year old registered for a new preschool for next year though. Time does fly!

Aww, they're growing up! But that's so exciting too. I'm sure they'll both love their new schools! :)

Oh man. That's crazy. You're going to have a kindergartner.

Taylor will actually be 4 for the first month she's in kindergarten. Isn't that crazy?? I have a hard time handling that fact, but I know she'll be ready.

Alex would also be 4 when he starts Kindergarten ( for like 2 days). But we may hold him back depending on how quickly he catches up with language and the like.

CRAZY. But good crazy for you, lady.

Wow! That's so exciting! And you will love some free time for mommy!

It's so hard to send the first one off to kindergarten. Hopefully you will be prepared by August ;)

How exciting and scary all at the same time! I was just there a year ago, so I know how you feel!

It is so nice you have the option of half day K- we had to go full force with C and while he loved it, I was a little bit sad to see him gone all day!
