It's been A LONG time since I blogged. Over 3 months! What a great 3 months it was! We had a simply WONDERFUL summer together! And then it came to an end. The plan for the school year was that Mack would continue at the same child development center as last year, attending pre-kindergarten in the morning, and then he would ride a bus to my school to attend pre-kindergarten in the afternoon. There are MANY, MANY reasons why I thought this was the best plan for him. I prayed and prayed over this. After 16 days of doing this, we are scaling back! I am a teacher. Nearly EVERY year, nearly EVERY 5th grader enters my 5th grade class at age 10. MANY, MANY, MANY people felt I should think about not entering Mack into kindergarten until he is 6, since he is a boy and he has a late summer birthday, etc, etc....but I'm like, NO one enters my class already being 11....seriously this has happened two times.
If I could stay at home with him, I would wait. If I had an option for him that would not cost me an arm and a leg and did not include 18 children in a class, I would wait. My thinking was that he is gonna be in full time care anyways, so lets get him learning and growing and such!
Stay tuned for Mack's ONE YEAR HOME! Just 23 days away! Also stay tuned for that day when I may have some kind of news to share about adoption #2!
