So THIS showed up this weekend in our mailbox ~
(And why is it that English is the THIRD listed language on this letter???)
I don't know how it's possible but the information inside says it's true.
It's enough for me break out in hives...
First of all, it seems like she was JUST BORN -
Second of all - Everything changes!
ACK! We have ten regular elementary schools, 2 magnet programs and a Catholic School to choose from...JUST IN OUR CITY!
When I was a kid - you either lived on the South side of town or the North side of town.
You went to whichever school you were zoned in - and your choices were morning kindergarten...or afternoon kindergarten.
We have the choice of full day or *half day* - and based on the hours - we will be choosing full day.
And while it would seem to make sense to just enroll at the school that we are zoned for - that school isn't the closest one to our house, nor does it have the most convenient hours. So, to send her to the school a couple of blocks away (one that we could walk to if we wanted, the one that begins at 8:15) - we have to open enroll...
To have her attend the school she's 'assigned to' - we figure out before school care, the bus system, rearranging our schedules (which in turn means possibly rearranging the schedules of two other people who car pool with the hubs), and other fun stuff.
It gets easier right?
Please tell me this gets easier...
