It seems like every time I get together with a group of Mom’s the conversation at some point in time turns to school.
Little Girl as you know is in pre-school and next year will be heading to Kindergarten.
I grew up in small towns, so there was never any question as to what school you went to. You went to the only school in town, but now living in the city; “what school are you sending your child to next year?” is a question I hear a lot of. There are a lot of different options out there – and I guess everyone has to find what works for them.
Do you choose the school that is within walking distance of your house? Or do you choose a different school you might have to bus your kids to?
Either way, Little Girl will not be able to stay at the same dayhome, so we are going to have to drive her somewhere. (Day home lady does not take before and after school kids.)
Just after Little Girl was born I heard about Foundations for the Future Charter Academy from an acquaintance that was about to send their son there.
I heard them speak very highly about this school and knew I had to look into it.
I immediately put Little Girl onto the wait list. She was only 4 months old.
When Little Boy was born, I put him on the wait list too.
Every year we get an email from the school letting us know it is time to re-new our wait list position.
And every year it feels so far away, someday, eventually they will go to school, but that is not something I have to deal with for now.
Yesterday I got a different email from the school. An email letting us know about the Kindergarten Information Night coming up in early January!
I knew this process would start in the New Year, I was just not mentally prepared to deal with this until after Christmas.
But we are excited.
I am crossing my fingers, but I know that Little Girl just slaughtered her Dad in a game of memory on the weekend – yup – she’s brilliant! Or does that say something about my husband? Ha ha, kidding honey.
What about you? Where do your kids go to school or where are you planning on sending them?
