Though it’s only March, I am starting to think ahead for the next school year. Drake’s preschool is pretty competitive with spots, so I am already being asked by the school about signing up for next year, and I am unsure what the best course of action is for Drake.
I had a lot of anxiety when I sent Drake at the start of the school year last September. I know my little boy — he is sweet, funny, and bright — but he also can be stubborn, rigid, and unused to being around children his own age. Since school has started though, Drake has flourished and thrived there. I think a lot of it does have to do with the fact that he is naturally quite inquisitive and likes learning new things. When I get him in the morning on school days, there is never hesitation on his part; he is ready to go and once we arrive, he barely gives me a backwards glance as he races off to join his class. I love that he loves going and enjoys his time thoroughly, and I love his wonderful teachers and classmates. Whenever I receive photos of what they are doing when I’m home, I’m always so happy knowing he is having such a great time.
