Ready or Not...Should We Go?

We had to make a big decision this summer...Should we send Big Brother to kindergarten or wait till next year?  Big Brother turned 5 the middle of June.  He is such a bright, active, sweet little boy. He loves to be a big helper of mom's. He has a great imagination and memory.  He is aware of so much.  He knows all his ABC's, can count to 20, can do simple addition. If fact after reading the 71 Things Your Child Needs to Know Before Kindergarten, we realized that he can do most of those things.   So why was it such a difficult decision on whether or not to send him to Kindergarten?   After many prayers, thoughts, and discussions we felt that our sweet little boy was just not ready to be a Kindergartener.  With the exception of his handwriting difficulties with left handedness, he is academically ready.  Emotionally, maybe mom wasn't ready, but he just wasn't quite ready either.  So, we decided that we will do preschool for one more year. 

I am pretty sure everyone was happy with this decision!  We also loved these cute little 1st day of school signs.  We'll be using the cute Kindergartener one next year!
