The W Family Chronicles

The first baby begins kindergarten.

Posted on: July 21, 2008

Yes, that’s right. J is currently at school, for his first full day of kindergarten. He had a short day last Wednesday and then was off Thursday and Friday since they do a “staggered start” for the kindergarteners. I do have pictures, but they are still in the camera. I’ll try to get them downloaded to the computer, edited and then uploaded later today!

We were very pleased that 2 of his pre-school friends who he’s spent the last 2 years with were in his class. So he already has some friends. That always helps the transition!

And since I inevitably get asked, he’s going to a year round school. It’s the only school of choice in our county and it’s by far the best elementary school. We were very lucky that he got in via the lottery process because there were a lot of kids who ended up on the waiting list. Luckily he got in on the first round, because I had mega-anxiety about it! The school we would have been assigned to was fine, but he’s the kind of kid who thrives on consistency…and the year round school provides that for us and for him!

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!
