Yesterday was John Brooks’ last day of pre-k for this school year. The Pre-K he attends is affiliated with the public elementary school in our town and thus runs on the school calendar. Which means…sing it with me now…”Schools out for SUMMER”.
I find it amusing that John Brooks is essentially oblivious to the fact that he should be mega-excited about summer vacation. Up to now his entire life has been one never-ending fun day which I am very thankful for so he has little concept that some things are “supposed to be” more fun than others.
John Brooks has LOVED school! He has had his trying moments for certain and there were a few weeks where we weren’t sure if they were going to let him back in the door the next Monday. However, we could not have hoped for better teachers to usher our child into what it means to “go to school”. He has learned so much about getting along with others, taking turns, listening to grown ups and being respectful of others. He still has a long way to go but I am so very thankful we chose to start him in Pre-K as a 3 year old because I believe it is going to set him up for success in the future.
