Nervously anticipating Kindergarten

We are entering the strange land that is called Kindergarten.  Gian is excited about new friends, going to a big school and the school bus. We are nervous about the big school, new friends and having him ride the school bus.
Is 5 too young to ride the school bus? Not sure, so I will be driving him until we both get comfortable, which may be in a week or never.  I have created a family calendar to keep track of all the activities.  Already, there has been two mornings of pre-kindergarten camp, which we missed b/c mommy didn't rsvp on time, a parent orientation night, a meet the teacher night and two more "practice" days b/f the big first day. Apparently, the school is nervous about this too. I somehow felt comforted when I read his supplies list and saw that the major item was crayons - maybe, things aren't moving too fast, after all.

  1. I remember these days of yesteryears Janet and now my baby who is now 9, William, wakes up, dresses himself, and yells goodbye as he leaves the house for the bus stop in the morning forgetting that once upon a time, Rick or I did all of the prodding and prepping and running him to the stop. Time will fly. Enjoy these moments and good for your for memorializing them. Gian will love you for it and you will enjoy the reflection!
