Guess who started back to school last week?
We got the clearance from his doctors that it was ok to go back.
He was out during flu season, his immune system is just not the strongest.
He is loving it, got right back into the swing of things. Me....not so much! I was so use to him being at home with me all the time. I love parts of him going to school, but I also love parts of the homeschooling time too.
We are blessed right now because we have a teacher who is awesome and we love her. She is what actually sold me on sending him to preschool in the first place. Two years ago if we hadn't met her I don't think I would have been sending him right now!
Here is the sucky part (you didn't think you'd get through this post without a sucky part did you?). Next school year Daniel will be in kindergarten. OMG - my little one in kindergarten, WOW where has the time gone?
Here is the super suck-ish part.Part One: Ms. Mills will NOT be there next year
Part Two: Kindergarten is full day.
REPEAT ...full days 9 a.m. to 4 p.m.
I am sure my face during the IEP was priceless. I just about fell outta my seat, and I heard a few giggles. I had NO CLUE that it was a full day, and then to hear the actual hours 9 -4.
I'm having a hard time wrapping my arms around that. I keep trying to come up with a list of why this will be good for him, but I'm having a hard time. I have a few reasons why its good, but to justify it I have to come up with more.
- He loves being social
See everyone sees Daniel as a big boy....
I still see him as this...
