August 3rd? Are you kidding me? It's still 90 some degrees out.
I guess I remember Summer being so long when I was young. I don't think we started until after Labor Day back then.
Oh well, I think we made the most of our Summer. Swimming, swimming and more swimming!
Oh and that trip to Mexico was THE BOMB! I haven't even finished part II of the Mexico blog yet, but it is on the way my faithful readers!!
So yes, although short, Summer was fabulous!
Mateo started Pre-K this year. Due to his late birthday, he will start Kinder next year (when he is almost 6!) Marcelo will be one year behind him, and I like that.
The state of Georgia funds a "full time" pre-k program for 4 year olds. That is awesome! Full time and FREE!? Yes! It is a lottery to get in and we unfortunately didn't get in our 1st or 2nd choice of schools. But hey! 3rd's a charm right? He is now enrolled in Hope-Hill Elementary School, and loving it! HHES is in the Old Fourth Ward so while not walkable, like our first choice Parkside Elementary, it is just a 10 minute drive.
I kind of hated pulling him out of the Language Garden pre-school, where he has been immersed in Spanish, again...full time and free!
His best friends Ben and Gabriel are also leaving and starting new schools. The change will be good for him.
He has come home from school each day saying that he had a great time and is already talking about a couple friends.
He never remembers what went on at school or what he ate for lunch, but he seems to like it and he's not starving when I pick him up at 2:30 everyday.
They actually have a one hour nap time, but he's says he doesn't sleep.
