Kindergarten

Time to blog; time to blog; time to blog....

I feel like the white rabbit....I'm late, I'm late....for a very important date.

I have this 'blog' (*do we even call them that anymore? Seems like so yesterday.....) Actually I have a few blogs and have had other blogs and usually only update this blog, but haven't in awhile.

I've been busy.

"Busy doing what?" you ask....

Busy doing Kindergarten.

"You're not in Kindergarten!" you say....

Of course not, but our girl is this 2015/16 school year- and well, in case you too have no clue what that first experience is like having a child enter the school system (*and no, preschool does not prepare you enough for what I'm trying to explain...) you have no clue.

You don't know what it's like to meet the new parents, the new crew. Have your child make new friends, new play dates. Have a new routine. Have the child tired in a new way. Paperwork. Binders. More paperwork. Homework (*yes, in Kindergarten.) And more...

Plus we sadly- but gladly -made the decision to pull our little girl out of the very confused and not effective for our family Seattle Public School District and send her to a private school over Christmas.

So basically we're starting over again.

So....it's time to let you know that Kindergarten will kick your sweet butts, but it's also amazing too. You see your kiddo grow in a way you never even could expect (*and sleep hard again!)

Good Luck!
