It's hard to believe that my baby (who, just the blink of an eye ago, was a squirmy newborn) is starting kindergarten tomorrow. Tomorrow!
Some of you may have read my posts last year about Finn's transition into the pre-K Japanese immersion program. In short, it was pretty rough.
This year we are trying out our neighborhood elementary school, so it will be a new school with new friends. We have done a lot of preparations: social stories, visiting the school, talking about the routine, meeting with the new teacher, practicing calming strategies.....and I can only hope that the transition will go better than last year.
I am actually feeling pretty good about it though. I know that there will be a transition period. I know he will cry. But I think that over the past year he has matured a lot and I think he is much more ready to handle the independence of school. Don't get me wrong, I am nervous, but I am also feeling optimistic and ready to see what the new year brings us.
