    Kindergarten is coming up for us, too! Crazy pants! But then my son has been in preschool for like 3 years (translation, forever!) so Kindergarten seems like it already came and went lol
    Hugs,

      That’s too funny. Lila has been in preschool for two years, but I’ve gotten to know the moms (and the kids, of course) so well that it feels very comfortable. Maybe I am worried more about all of the change!?!? Gah…

    Oh my…how I remember like it was yesterday, feeling this same way. Wait! It was only a year ago. Trust that you are a GREAT mom. Your kids are happy and well adjusted. Keep doing what you are doing and the rest will all naturally happen. Grace was not reading when she entered kindergarten and as our year wraps up, she is now reading at an ‘H’ level. Enjoy your summer, crafting and the camping trips that are sure to happen…the rest will happen soon enough. Keep on giving those hugs and making your happy memories with the girls until then 🙂

      Thank you, Amy. It means a lot to me to hear that you felt the same way just a year ago. The reading thing scares me more than I care to admit, actually. It’s one of those thing that I feel so ill-equipped to do: how do you teach a kid to read!?!?

      I can’t believe that there’s only one summer left before this kid is a full blown elementary school student. Time has flown!

    I read this post in my email the other day (right before bed) and then forgot to come back and leave a comment. 😉
    I can totally relate to everything you said! Both of my boys are starting school in the fall (K and Pre-K) and I’m constantly worrying if they’ll be ready. I even briefly wondered if I should sign them up for some tutoring program this summer. Thankfully their school convinced me that wasn’t necessary, but I will continue to do some activities at home to encourage learning and independence. 🙂 I think the biggest issue will be getting them to have confidence to do things for themselves – and getting used to the idea of being away from me (and each other).

      I had the same thoughts, Jen! I looked up some reading/tutoring type summer programs, but then I talked myself out of it. And I agree – it’s about getting them to do stuff by themselves. I can’t believe that in just over two months, my kid will be spending the whole day away from home.

      It’s crazy!
