Last year when we made the decision to let Anna stay in pre-k it was a hard decision. In my heart and gut I knew she was not ready. In the last month she is really showung signs of being ready for the challenges kindergarten.
While I was shopping for thi gs for our cruise I walked through the school supplies. I picked up a book to help Anna with her penmanship. The book has been sitting in our kitchen since.
Today we were picking up our house after 2 of the triplets went home. She sat down and started to write her letters on a piece of paper. Anna then told me "Mommy I am working hard because I want to write like a grown up." A piece of me was crushed. You know the piece of me that wants her to stay just the way she is forever. So sweet and innocent.
I pulled out the book that I bought and now she is practicing her penmanship all on her own.
