A month or so ago I went to Preston's kindergarten orientation. I must admit the whole thing made me pretty weepy. Weepy and a little stressed.
Weepy because the whole thing feels like the beginning of the end. As the principal was waxing on about how her children were all grown I couldn't help but burst into tears. I don't want my baby to grow up!
And stressed because when I inquired about what they like the kids to know before they start the teachers told me that most kids know how to write their name, know their alphabet (by sight and how to write them) and their numbers.
We'd already been working on Preston's name but we are so not ready with the alphabet. So here we are. Crunch time. We have 27 days until my due date. If I go full term we should make it through the alphabet at least once. I figure when baby comes all bets are off so we're going for it now.
I plastered the house in Aa's
We colored "apes" and wrote our capital and lower case A's.
Phew. One down 25 to go.
Oh, and Wyatt wanted me to take a picture of him.
"Take picture of Wy-wy?"
And as a sweet surprise Nate showed up after work with a gift for me. :) My other ring doesn't fit right now so he got me a new one. (Gotta love craigslist!)
