Kindergarten Papers...

Yesterday, we stopped at our school administration building and I showed an original birth certificate, two proofs of residency, and filled out three enrollment forms. Tommy is officially signed up for Kindergarten this fall.

He is SO ready and SO capable and SO smart and SO independent, I do not worry about him at all. In fact, he's sort of ticked he's not in Kindergarten right now. :)

All year, I've been loving our Mondays and Wednesdays together. No school, open days, less of a schedule, errands, togetherness, alone time. On these days, I feel like I am still holding on to the very last bit of "little, little kid" time I have left. The last few months of having a boy not in school every day, with time still left for library visits, Targeting, play dates with little boy friends, walks in the sunny snow, and a game of PIG in the basement.

On longer preschool days, he sits in the back seat giving me full reports on his day, talking a mile a minute with exhaustion in his eyes.

But until then, I will hold him tight and play and play our days away. Because now I know...what others don't say, or maybe don't feel the way I do. And that is, that first grade is a big deal. And being away from them for eight hours is not fun for me. And that I really, really miss them each and every day and cannot wait to get them from school.

So when the summer ends, he will be on his way. He will be so, so ready. And I will be anxiously waiting for him after school, to spend every second I can with him.

Be sure to make multiple authenticated copies of that birth certificate...that kid is going to run for President some day...even if his sister gets there first.

What a kid! PLG, wish I could hang out with him more. Maybe you want to move to the Metro?
