A lot of Emma and Meilynn's friends have started pre-school this year. There are many reasons that they are not at pre-school right now. One is that I was just not ready. I know, usually going to pre-school is based on whether your child is potty trained and can work in the environment that the school sets. After raising two daughters to adulthood already I know how fast this time goes. I don't want to miss it at all! I already missed out on eight months of Emma's life and two years and two months of Meilynn's. I missed so many firsts, I don't want to miss any more. My second reason is that Meilynn has only been home one year. My third reason is that I taught pre-kindergarten for 5 years and am a credentialed elementary teacher so I should be able to teach them everything they need, right? They get enough socialization in their many activities. Fourth, I am temporarily living here at the beach for probably three months.
So with that being said I am embarking on the idea of doing a little bit of homeschool pre-school. Just trying it out a little at a time. There are so many teaching moments in the day that I can't get through a quarter of my ideas.
