And just like that my little boy is a preschooler. Ollie started Montessori school this week. It’s been an adjustment for all of us, but every day is getting a little bit better. Nate and I researched a ton and found the program we liked best. It’s held in a church not far from my parents house and my work, so it’s super close and convenient. The teachers are kind and gentle. I think it’s going to be a great fit after we get him adapted to his new normal.
He’ll go here for the next three years and then on to kindergarten. We still aren’t sure where we’ll be sending him for kindergarten yet (our home school district is not an ideal choice) but I’m not going to worry about that for now, I need to get used to this preschool business first!
To all those who sent kids back to school this week or will be next week, I hope it’s a great year! And to all the teachers and school administrators I know, I hope you have a great year as well and thanks for all YOU do!
