    Another "first" in my life announced here.

    I know there are a lot of you that don't know me from "way back when" I was just a member... But I shared everything here to my friends, from my kids' births, to the hardship and loss of one. It's the whole reason I bought this forum instead of letting it be taken over by advertisers... So many friends here to share my life with, even if it's just talking about what we love.
    Well, today is another first. To go with the announcement of births, and sharing birthday pictures, today I share with you Laurel's (birth post) first day of school. She never went to preschool, or had a babysitter, so this is our first time having her away from us. She was very excited though, even got up 2 hours too early!

    Getting ready for the drive



    Walking into her class



    Have a good day baby girl!!

    Wow, big day! I don't remember my first day of preschool, but I definitely remember my first day of several grades. Wish I could say I was as bold as your little trooper!

    Her birthday is like a month too late to get into the normal Kindergarten... So we checked with a charter school that is actually rated better than the elementary and they tested her and decided she was a perfect candidate for their program, by the end of this kindergarten year they'll be done with up to first grade and from then on they teach one year in advanced. She'll be 5 in Sept.

    Wow, I hope she can appreciate what a great opportunity she's earned. You must be proud.

    PS - It's totally weird to me to have friends who's kids are growing up and talking, going to school, etc. I'm just barely getting used to the idea of my friends having children. I go to visit some family friends every once in a while and see their grandson, and when I talk to this little 10-year-old miniature person I can't help but think, "I used to be able to hold you in one arm! You pooped yourself on me!"

    be surprised what schools can do when allowed....the local school here has some flexible programs that allow bright students to shoot ahead on reading especially......at the end of last year there were 24 kindergartners that read at a 1st grade level and of those 12 were reading at a 2nd grade level by the end of the year.....they have a similar program for math.....since my oldest and one of the math teachers really dont mesh for various reasons, she wont be in the normal sophomore math class this year and is instead in an independent studies type program and could quite possibly finish out the year farther ahead than if she took the regular class.....not bad for a poor indian reservation public school.....
