Boy-o is going to be starting school, pre-kindergarten, this September.
And tomorrow, his teacher is coming to our home to do a home visit, meet Boy-o and let him get to know her a bit before the beginning of school. I think this is the most amazing and wonderful idea - not only because it will allow Boy-o to feel more secure about his new beginning, but especially because it will make ME feel better about Boy-o's new beginning.
Although I have approached the idea of him starting school with some trepidation, his two weeks at summer camp have convinced me that he really is ready for this big leap. When I left him this morning, he didn't even look up from where he was building a log house with one of the counsellors-in-training. And when I picked him up thre hours later, he was so excited that he was practically vibrating, rushing to show me the art he had made, and chattering on for a good 10 minutes about all of the activities he'd done and people he'd met.
Gosh. My Boy-o is getting all growed up.
