Kindergarten

I have a hard time believing that kindergarten is behind us. I mean technically I have two more kids so really I have more kindergarten but right now kindergarten in is behind us. And I'm not sure who's more upset - me because my girl is growing up or Addie because she loved her teacher and class so much.


This year has been an amazing year for Addie. I will admit that I was really nervous going into this year. My oldest was going to school. Granted she had been doing preschool for two years but this was different. It was a different school. It was all new teachers and friends. It was all day. Suddenly I wasn't the one spending most of the time with her during the day. I couldn't make sure she was eating her lunch or making sure she was doing okay. It was a tough transition for me from for a long time having her so dependent on me just to communicate to suddenly standing back and letting her doing it all herself.

But I got through. And it turned out that Addie loved school. Her teachers noticed quickly that she was a stronger reader. She ended up in a reading group with just one other student where they read books with a third grade reading level. She struggled at times with boredom because some of her friends were just getting their alphabet down where as she came into kindergarten already reading. But they recognized her strength and pushed her, not letting her get lost in the sea of kindergarteners.



She has had a blast all year long, loving computers and P.E. the most while art and music were always her lows. It was just been an amazing year for her. I had been sad when we moved schools about leaving her last one but we definitely didn't downgrade. This school has been amazing and I love where we are. She has just continued to grow and is more than ready for first grade. And I can't wait to see where she goes next.
