Happiest Mommy

For some reason, I had it in my head that Laurel would be starting kindergarten in the fall of 2012. But per Utah law, she has to be 5 by September 1st to enroll, and her birthday isn't until October. Which means she cannot go to kindergarten until the fall of 2013!!!

I get an extra year with my little girl before she leaves home!!! This is the best mommy present ever!

If I were posting this I would be pulling my hair out! I love my children but there's a point where they need to go out of the house and be with their fellow busy-bodies! My nerves and house and cleaning all need a break.

BTW, in Arizona there is something you can apply for that would grant early admittance if your bday falls between Sept 1 and Dec 31. You may want to check if UT has that too.

I bet she is getting an incredible education in your home. No rush.

okay, wow - you are an awesome mom. Grant's birthday is Sept 23 - so he just barely misses the cut-off - luckily he will do pre-k next year because we need a little separation for our sanity. And, I realized that my kids will go to school back to back. Grant will start kindergarten in 2012, Audrey in 2013, Claire in 2014. Crazy, huh? I think I am a little sad about having to do it wham, bam.

I am sure Laurel is learning tons with you and it is so nice that you love having her home.
