We found out Adam's school info last night. He will be on the B track which means he actually starts school on July 30th and he is in the pm kindi. They showed us these statistics about how many kids are signed up for kindergarten this year, 127 kids, and how 97.5% or something got their first choice for track and am or pm classes. Apparently 5 kids didn't get the first choice, we are one of the 5. I had hoped for A track and am class. It made me laugh, although I am actually happy with what we got. Adam will get 3 more weeks of summer vacation than the other kids AND he will be more alert in classes since he will go 12:05-2:45pm instead of having to start at 8am. I am hoping to get him into the after school program and then I will only have to find childcare for 3 mornings a week. I figure it should be cheaper this way. An added bonus for me on my days off is that he will be in school when Noelle naps. It will be nice to still be able to have some down time in the afternoon 2-3 days a week. I am still trying to get it through my head that he will be in school M-F since for 2 years now it has just been M-Th. Hopefully I don't forget to take him to school that first Friday!! LOL I am really looking forward to him starting kindergarten though. It will be nice for him to make friends with children who actually live near us so that he can have playdates and whatnot.
