I blinked. Now Little Miss Sunshine is ready to start kindergarten. And I mean, the girl is ready. She is definitely my child. I’m one who would organize my new school supplies, smell the paper, and run my fingers over it imagining the genuis that would come out of my brain and impress my teachers. Ahem. Anyway.
We have debated back and forth among several schooling options. We decided to suspend all decision making until we knew what school district we would be living in. After the housing issue was settled, I began to research the local school district and was very impressed with what I found. Today, we went for our kindergarten visitation.
Little Miss pranced in the door and sat on the bench in the hallway kicking her legs. “Is it time yet? Is it time yet?” When the principle and teachers came to collect the visitors, she was first up and had one of the teacher’s hands right away. Aww. The teacher then asked her how to pronounce her name. After a couple tries and the teacher still not saying it to Little Miss’s satisfaction, she said, it starts with an “I” and it says “Ih, Ih.” We are only at visitation, and Little Miss is making sure the teachers know the short vowel sound for the letter “I” which her first name begins with. Oh, this is going to be a ride! The principle was CRACKING up, and came over to make sure we had heard what Little Miss said. Oh yes, that is our girl.
Let the fun begin.
This gets me a little choked up…especially since I know it’ll be us NEXT year! My how the time passes by so quickly.
