As August gets closer and closer,
I am reminded how little time is left until Moose starts big kid school.
He starts a program called "transitional kindergarten" this year, which is supposed to be in between preschool and kindergarten for kids who won't be 5 years old by the state deadline.
The cool thing about the program is that teachers will be watching and evaluating the kids to see which are ready for kindergarten and which need the extra year.
The kids who are ready can get moved up to the one year kinder program with their parents' permission or they can stay in the two year program.
It is crazy to think that my little boy is growing up so fast and not only is going to be in a regular school, rather a school with just preschoolers, but he may be moved up to a traditional kindergarten class sooner than we had expected.
It's really exciting that he is getting to move on to bigger and better things, but a bit sad that my little boy is growing up.
He isn't my little baby anymore, my crazy toddler, he is a big kid.
And in two weeks, he'll be a big, elementary school attending kid.
I can't wait to post about his first day and updates on how he is doing.
I'm so proud of him.
Now if only the school would get the information out with who his teacher is, which classroom he'll be in, and what supplies he'll need we'll be set!
