We are about to embark on a huge life change in our family…the youngest is going to kindergarten! Historically in our family, this age is really hard in terms of separation anxiety. Our oldest struggled in pre-k, so much so that we decided to homeschool in kindergarten. That worked amazingly well at the time, but we also had two little ones at home and they got along well. When it was time for Son #2 to start kindergarten, he had already been in pre-k for a year, but kindergarten, and really first grade, was really hard for him. He is the most introverted son and looking back, school was really good for him, even though there were days that he absolutely did not want to go. Now that our last son is old enough to start kindergarten, I am anxious about what it will be like. We just moved to a different city and they will all be starting a new school, but thankfully it is the same school. I anticipate school to be hard on everyone for the first few weeks, but especially hard on this little guy…and his mommy. He was in a two day a week Parents Day Out program, which he enjoyed, but happily graduated from (see picture below!) but really, kindergarten is going to be SO different!
