Kidoinfo.com is running some thoughts from me on getting your kids ready for kindergarten.
13 days until the big day for Leo!!! (Providence Public Schools' first day is Tuesday, 8/26.) Our project between now and then: he wants to learn how to write his last name. He's good to go without that, but he wants to be able to do it, and so we're doing it. Also, he's memorizing our home phone number--that does seem useful.
Tomorrow's a PTO-sponsored playdate for all of the incoming kindergarteners at his school, Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. Elementary. We're very eager to meet the new kids and parents, and see some of our old friends--lots of siblings in kindergarten this year.
