She's growing up...


She has enough hair for a ponytail... barely.

Yesterday morning we began the process of visiting preschools for the fall. We went to the one yesterday, and have another open house next weekend. (Apparently you have to choose a school and apply in January, if you want any hope of getting a spot for the fall) I had a flash forward moment of taking Aurora to visit colleges. It was pretty bittersweet.

Loved the preschool. It's only a few blocks away, so we could walk. It's a mixed age class- love that. The teachers are all super dedicated and been there for like 20 yrs- great. And it reminded me so much of my beloved St. Mark, where I used to work. Very child centered and child led. NAEYC accredited, too. Very nice, natural outdoor space with mature trees. Aurora loved it too- she had a blast (Which settled any doubts I had of whether she was actually ready for preschool).

All great... except that it's a 5 day only program, and we're really only looking to send her 2, maybe 3 days a week.

I still can't believe she'll be old enough for preschool this fall.
Time is flying..
