I can't help it, I'm very sad today. When we sold the Coffee House back in October, we took Jack out of pre-school. I've just loved to death spending all of my time with him for the past 8 months, but with him being more or less an only child along with us living in a very mature neighborhood with next to no children, he was getting lonely.
I tried buying a dog...it sort of worked. He now has someone to wrestle and fight with (yes, he fights with his dog). Still though, he wanted to go back to school and he misses being around kids. He actually misses it. So Mon., Wed., and Friday's he will be at pre-school.
He turned 5 this past May and is old enough to go to kindergarten this year, but from my past experiences with raising my other boys I have decided not to start him until fall 2011. I've wrestled with this decision as many of the kids I do know of, that have late birthdays are starting this year, but all the advice I'm gathering says that I am more apt to make the mistake in starting him too soon rather than too late. As a parent, I really hate having decisions to make that will effect him so profoundly.
Sooo....my next decision will be whether or not to have him go full time in the fall. I'm going to let the summer play out, then maybe I'll know what's best for him...or me! I know I'm going to blink my eyes and I'll be throwing his graduation party...:(
