Daddy and I had the opportunity and privilege of attending our fourth Kindergarten Round-Up at the kids' school, because Baby is soon off to kindergarten! The meeting was fine (we can do this in our sleep by now) but Little Girl was kind of funny. She is the only one of the four children who was not all wound up to go. When I asked, "Are you really going to go to kindergarten?!" she shrugged and said, "Nah, I think I'll stay home with you."
During the parent presentation, the kids had the opportunity to play in and explore the kindergarten classrooms. Madeline met up with some of her preschool friends and soon warmed to the scene. By the time we retrieved her, she was talking about my kindergarten teacher and riding the bus with her big brother and sister. No rush. Fall will come soon enough.
The best part of the evening was when we got a look at the tuition agreement: FOURTH CHILD FREE. Finally, one who earns her keep.
