Like It or Not...

My baby is going to be starting Kindergarten this year. And in case you're not sure where I stand on the issue...

I do not like it one little bit!!!!

Just sayin'...

But like it or not, it's happening so I'm required to plan for it. So I did. Against my will.

Great plan! I understand what you mean about Kindergarten, I have one more year of pre-school, not looking forward to the growing up of my baby.

I was wondering how Holden would take to the chapter books, as well. We're 4 weeks in, and surprisingly, he is totally hooked! It was starting the year off with The Boxcar Children that roped him in. He was dying to know what happened next, and now I'm suckered into reading other Boxcar Children books to him and to Haylee as bedtime stories. She has eagerly listened in because that series was her favorite of all time! LOL. I can't stand reading the epic run-on sentences in Pooh Corner, either, so I downloaded the audio book and will suffer through it again that way! The audio book was free. I got it a few years ago when it was Haylee's turn through this core, 'cause I'd just flat out abandoned it with Hayden! ha, ha.

We loved Core A! I had a hard time leaving the preschool years behind as well :-(, and now I'm having a hard time saying goodbye to kindergarten!

Madonna said...

We are doing Core A too! This is my first time using it. Keeping my fingers-cross that my son likes it!

How fun! Can I come over to your house and listen to the stories? What a great lineup!
