Laura is so ready to be in school. They had to triple her assesment time last week because she assessed so high. I'm grateful that she'll be in a school that can accommodate her. Though they can't let her read at her exact level, (9th grade reading material addresses subjects no 5 year old should know about) her teacher has a special program all ready just for her. And, she will get to do math with a special group that will complete first grade math by the end of her Kindergarten year. We are so blessed to have gotten in this school!
Despite being so ready mentally, neither Laura nor I was ready for the emotional shock of school. She threw up at home this morning because she was so nervous. But, after lots of hugs at home and after Jason and I walked her in to her classroom, she seemed great. When I got back in the car, it was my turn to cry. It's the beginning of a new era around here!
