kindergarten for dummies.

I have been agonizing over what to do with Claire next year for kindergarten. Thinking about this has been a nice little distraction from less fun topics like birth plans.

It boggles the mind that I have a child who will be five in just a couple of months. This year, she has attended a wonderful, small private school. I love everything about the place. Even the tiny potties. Her wonderful, small private school also has a kindergarten, so it should be an easy decision to keep her there. Only I've struggled trying to decide if we'd move her to the school that would be her elementary school.

Today, I decided. The school with the latest start time wins. Also the one that has pajama day and encourages the attendance of her beloved Teddy. It helps that we know this place and love this place and with all of the uncertainty ahead, I think we could all use a bit of the familiar. Even if it's just for one more year.
