My kids are athletes.
TR is ready for kindergarten. When she completed her kinder screen, she (all the kids) were given a "toy". Yesterday she told QT the story of how she got the toy. She told him she had been to
kindergarten, that she had snacks, she had fun and because she had a good day, she got the toy.
She told QT she wanted to go back to kindergarten every day but I told her she would go back when she turned 5. I am glad she had a great day. She got to meet the kindergarten teachers and get an idea of what a kindergarten day might be like.
During her preschool show and tell he talked about her kindergarten. Prayerfully the school staff likes her more than she liked them and will send us a letter of admission.
I do not think I have had a mid-day nap since we moved. I am exhausted. The kids usually eat at 8 am, so I am up at 7 am. Starting school is going to be rough. We will have to wake up, eat breakfast, get dressed, and off to school for a certain time each day. I miss 9 am or 10 school start times. Being at school for 8 or thereabouts might be a challenge.
I do plan to enjoy kindergarten. I want to volunteer at least once per week. We work at TR's preschool at least 2x per month. I won't say it's fun. It used to be fun. It's interesting and the kids have fun. I enjoy peeking at TR to see how she works but when parents work, they have to be there for all of the kids, so I can't focus on my kid. The park was much more fun. The kids at the park were a different bunch.
