My little girl starts Kindergarten tomorrow. I mean, she's just a baby! How could this be?!?!
We spent our last day of the summer out running errands. Not THAT much fun when you think about it, but it DID involve a trip to IKEA's playroom (or Smaland, if you rather), a snack from McDonald's, a treat of swedish fish, a crafty item from Michael's and a trip to the playground. Pretty soon I'll be running these errands kid-free, or at least, with only a toddler in tow.
Eloise starts preschool on Friday, as well. I'm much less nervous about her. In fact, I could send HER to kindergarten tomorrow and not even think twice about it. She doesn't have a nervous constitution like Iris does (and like I do). Eloise will be going to school two and a half days per week, which is actually quite a step up for her, too. She's really going to love it!
Iris has never been to school for six hours straight, but I bet having gone for four is a good enough practice. For whatever reason, her school decided to have the first day on a Thursday even though the elementary grades don't go to school on Fridays. Weird. So, it will be one day on then three days off. THEN on Monday BOTH of my girls will be in school for SIX WHOLE HOURS. Oh my goodness, it seems too good to be true. What will I do first? Paint? Affix things to the walls? Clean? Lounge with my feet up and watch Bravo re-runs (okay, you know I am SO doing that!)?
Like all good blogging mama's of kindergartners, I will be writing about Iris's first day, so stay tuned!
