Hi guys and sorry if I'm remiss with this post. I was under the impression (and out of the listserve loop) that my post day was the first Friday of each month! I'm very sorry for being a blockhead. As for being out of the loop where the schedule is posted, I've been swamped with vacation, car-wreck issues and my son starting kindergarten.
No big deal, I know. I'm shocked at how I feel about the kindergarten thing. I've been waiting for this for a long time. My teeny premature son is finally out the door and I nearly passed out when the school doors swung open and he disappeared inside.
I feel like I'm the one who logged a week at a new school with big toilets (and lots of them), lots of kids and rules by the ton. Kindergarten is truly big business these days. Nurturing, smurturing, there's learning to do.
Seriously, I couldn't ask for a better school or teacher for my son. Even with all of my professional experience lying within the halls of education, I wasn't prepared for how it would feel as a parent to send my child into the abyss. And he's got it easy. Tiny classes, rated the sixth best school in western PA by the Pittsburgh Business Times. It can't get better than this. But my heart thinks different.
What a baby I am. How did you feel when your kids first went to school?
Again, sorry for the mishap on posting dates...
