- "school" work -


Ellie doesn't go to daycare or preschool of any kind. My mom and my in laws watch her during the week, Monday through Thursday (I know, I know, we are lucky beyond belief! Free, amazing daycare!), and I am off on Fridays with her. Although I eventually want to put her in some sort of part time preschool program to get her ready for kindergarten, she is going to be a "late start" kindergartner because her November birthday misses the September cut off date. This means she won't be starting kindergarten until September, 2015. That's still 3+ years away, so I definitely think it would be a little too many years of preschool if we started her right now. 

However, we decided it was time to start doing some more "learning" things with her, rather than just letting her play all day. So my mom has just recently started doing some preschool workbook pages with her. She's so darn proud of herself every time she finishes a page and tells me every day about the "school work" she did. It's pretty darn adorable, if I do say so myself!

I absolutely love this little girl, and how excited she is about her "school" work!

Our moms aka the grandmas are the best. My mom bought Hadley a preschool book & did that stuff with her too!! Now - if only I could follow through with that. I am going start having Hadley go to "school" Friday/Saturday/Sunday mornings with me while Henry is napping. Yep you are awesome, thanks for this!!

So fun! You guys are so lucky, if we had family to watch my daughter, I would still be working! Don't get me wrong, I love being home with her, but losing 40% of our income was kind of lame.

We pay zero for babysitting, too. My parents and the in-laws are retired which has really given us a lot of freedom to do the things we still like to do as a couple. Lucky us, huh? She looks DARLING doing school work. I wouldn't be worried about that first official day of school. I think she is a NATURAL :)

These shots are so great! I think it's great that she is doing workbook pages! I have to start this with my little one soon!

Oh my heck.... SO precious! I love the idea to start doing preschool work with them long before they actually go to preschool! That way they can learn to love it before going to school!
