Ellie went back to preschool today. She was pumped to be starting again and getting to be with all her friends at the same school she's been at for the last two years. This year she is a big ol' Pre-K-er. That's right, one more year until Kindergarten. Well, it should be one more year by her age anyway. But, since she JUST turned 4 and is an August baby we will be putting her in a transition class somewhere next year. Okay, I'll admit it....it is more for selfish reasons to why I won't start her in Kindergarten next year. Academically, she'll be more than ready, but I am not ready. And a two year spacing between all three kiddo's sounds much better than a 1 and 3 year spacing in school, right? If I hold her back she will get to stay home with me another year and that is one more year that I will get with her before she leaves me and goes off to college. And she will be the oldest in her class instead of the youngest. So, even though this is her last Preschool year, she will still have another year before Kindergarten.
She loves her school, and loves her class. She's been ready to go back for a few weeks now. I think she is disappointed that she doesn't have school tomorrow. :0)
She has her three best little girlfriends in her class again this year, and we are looking forward to another great year!!
