First day of school round 4 and 5





Bis and Yordi started preschool today. We weren't sure where they would be at age wise when they came home, so didn't pre- enroll them in our little preschool co-op. After the big kids started school I realized that these guys would be bored stiff, and boredom leads to trouble ... so they started HeadStart preschool today. They will learn the basics of the basics- from table manners to colors!! A big emphasis is put on learning English as a second language. We will meet with their teachers every 5 weeks to incorporate our home goals into their school goals. I am hoping that this will help with some of our issues that we are working so hard on... tag team affect and surround them at home and away from home with some of the same guidelines whether or not mom is standing right there. They have school 4 days a week, so today after I dropped them off, I did what any newly alone mom of 5 does... I showed up at the elementary school to volunteer in the classroom for my 3 free hours... :)
