I've struggled with this in more than one way. I've wondered about putting my thoughts to print. I can't believe my baby girl is about to go to kindergarten. I mean, I knew it was coming, but it wasn't real until kindergarten round-up. Her turning 5 didn't hit me as emotionally as kindergarten enrollment. I made my appointment with the school. We signed her up. She's so excited about being in school. She wanted to start immediately. Ever since we knew the day was coming, I've had pro and con lists running in my head- homeschool vs. public vs. private. That's a lot to think about! Trust me, it's a lot. So much that I deleted all my thoughts at fear of being long-winded. After we'd attended the public school enrollment thing, my heart was still tugged that I wasn't 100% sure. Kevin and I did lots of talking and listing and praying. How blessed we are that we have a choice- within our family, within this country- as to where we send our child to school! I'm so glad it's not a matter of "if" she goes to school. Friday, we enrolled Beth in the Christian school at our church. I'm relieved. I know that she will get a great education. I feel confident in knowing she will be loved and encouraged by the staff- they already know and love her. She has church friends and a mom-club friend who will be in her class (which right now has 10 students). She will attend half-day, so we'll still have afternoons to rest and spend time together. Now, I haven't told her about the uniforms yet, but I know it won't be a problem- she gets to wear skirts and dresses.
