The Kid will be five years old on September twentieth. Nineteen days too late for Kindergarten.
So, we looked into a private school that J's cousin attends. However, we were told that they did not have Kindergarten. This was right around the end of the last school year.
Last week I found out that the school had decided to add Kindergarten this year. So, I called them. I spoke to the Kindergarten teacher. Ms. Hanna. She told me that they were not accepting students based on age but on where the student was academically. So, we made an appointment and the Kid went to test.
We took a tour of the school. Older buildings but still nice. Big classrooms. Large grounds and lots of run around room. Then, the Kid took his test.
After, she told me she had a meeting and she would call me and let me know.
Now, I didn't know whether I should try to convince the Kid that it would be OK if he didn't get to go. (Because he was already very excitedly telling people "I'm going to Kindergarten!") Or, should I be freaking out about school clothes, and school supplies?
Fun Fact: They start school AUGUST FIRST!!!!!!! (PANIC!)
Ms. Hanna did call me back that night and told me she would be happy to take the Kid. She said he did well on the test, listened very well and understood all she said to him.
She has a small class since it is a private school and it's the first year for the Kindergarten. The Kid will be surrounded by girls. (Help! Haha Just kidding.)
Now I really get to panic. Did I mention they start August first????
Also . . . My Baby!
(This is a photo of a photo, that's why the grainy.)
I wish I knew how old he was here but I'm thinking just a couple months.
He's going to SCHOOL!
This was on the way to take his Kindergarten test.
My BABY is going to Kindergarten! He is SO excited!
Now. Pencils, crayons, paper, glue sticks, lunch boxes, lunch, clothes, shoes, etc, etc, etc . . . Help! :)
