I just made the call.
I didn't want to do it.
But, it is done now. No turning back......... no turning back.
With the constant stream of sickness around here and all the problems at daycare, I had to give up volunteering on Tuesdays and Thursdays. I didn't want to do, but right now for our family, this is for the best.
My stint as a volunteer would have ended by May, but with Bailey moving to pre-school in April it just didn't fit. Bailey could have started pre-school in May, but I was worried about how hard it would be to make friends a month after everyone else had already started. Plus I want to get him out of daycare ASAP.
We are considering two pre-schools. One is a Catholic pre-school that comes highly recommended from several mothers in this building not only from an academic standpoint, but also from the standpoint of helping the kids get along with one another and experience many types of cultures and people. The other is the one closest to our apartment and instead of focusing so much on studying, the focus is on physical fitness.
I went to visit the Catholic one yesterday. The school is large with it's own swimming pool, potato patch and a huge playground. Every month there is some special event from a Christmas play in December to a Sport's Festival in the autumn and so on. I was impressed with the facility.
I want to check out the other school sometime this week and hopefully make a decision by next Monday. There will be uniforms, lunchboxes, indoor shoes, an art smock and several hundred other things to buy.
And it looks like Bailey is headed off to pre-school.
