Kindergarten Evaluation

Posted on: April 14, 2008

Today was the day that J had the evaluation/screening for kindergarten. He scored very well, nearly a year ahead of his actual age. He’s definitely ready and will be starting at an advantage, which is what I hoped for by waiting an extra year before he started school. I spoke to one of the teachers regarding the sensory processing disorder and was reassured that they’ll work with him to make sure he has no major problems stemming from that. I also spoke with the nurse regarding the vaccine exemptions again and it was great to not get a lecture regarding our choices…she took it all in stride and we discussed options for us should there be an outbreak of something that is vaccine preventable. She’s also going to get additional info for us from the immunization coordinator and give me a call. I was *so* impressed with her and the way she discussed it with me. I’ve heard horror stories and was prepared to have to defend our position but luckily it was unnecessary.

So now we’re just about ready…I still need to get his health assessment done by our pediatrician and I also plan to do a dentist and eye doctor visit before school starts. I cannot believe my baby is starting kindergarten!

W Family Players

D is the dad, the husband, and the breadwinner. All around nice guy and good at pretty much everything he does. It's disgusting, really. But makes him worth keeping around.

M is the mom, the wife, and the hopeless housekeeper. At least the kids' heads haven't fallen off yet. Beyond that, she sucks at the "stay at home" thing. Oh, and she's the blogger.

J is the big boy. Born October 11 2002, he is in kindergarten and loves it. Now 6 years old, and too smart for his own good. Talks a lot but extremely entertaining.

C is the little boy. Born June 26, 2006, he went through a lot in his first year but is doing just fine now. The only blond in the family, so his paternity is routinely questioned by rude strangers.

V is our baby girl. She is brand new and arrived in January 2009. So far everything is going well. We're thrilled to have added the final piece to our family puzzle. And yes, she WILL be the final piece!
