Yesterday and today I attended parent/teacher conferences. Last night was Hannah's, who is in 6th grade this year. I was so happy and proud to learn that she is doing fantastic and is receiving mostly A's! Tonight was Stella's, who is in Kindergarten this year. To be honest I was a little worried about her. When she was in preschool, the teachers had told us that she wasn't ready and that we might want to wait until she turned six to enroll her in Kindergarten. We did follow their advice and I am so glad we did because she is doing fantastic as well! Her teacher even said that she is doing better than quite a few of the other students in her class. I can't express how proud I am of my kids and I'm so glad all our hard work is paying off! Now all I have to do is get my son into a preschool so that he can also strive for success!
Finding a preschool for Bub-bub has been tough because I don't have the money to pay for it and they all seem to be really expensive. One place wanted $116 a week and then on top of that I would have to pay daycare too because it isn't a full day program. There are some free preschools around me but they are only 2 hours a day and they aren't exactly close to my house so by the time I got him there and came home it would be time to go back and get him. I just can't justify the waste of gas or time. Of all my kids he needs the preschool experience the most, especially the socialization aspect of it because he can be a bully when around other kids and he doesn't get his way. I feel bad for him too because he hears his sisters talking about all their friends and the stuff they do while at school and he feels left out. Hopefully I will get it all figured out soon.
