Pretty Princess's big day!

My Pretty Princess is growing up! I can't believe it, but today we took her for her first day of preschool! I know, she is four years old - I just can't believe it!

I think a big part of what I can't believe is that we homeschool and are sending her to preschool!! Game Master went to public school one year. That is it. We've never done preschool, daycare or anything!

Why are we sending Princess to school?


*The main reason is because she isn't interested in learning from me! She won't let me read books to her. She won't let me teach her. She learns better from others. We want what is best for each of our children, and just feel this will be best for her - at least for this year.

*Of course, another benefit will be how much easier it will be to homeschool the boys. Princess won't have to go on all our treks (she spends so much time sitting waiting on the boys to be done with PE, soccer/basketball/baseball, play practice, or whatever class they are taking...). It will give me more opportunities with them.

We missed her while she was at school this morning. She absolutely loved it! She can't wait to go back on Monday! I'm so proud of her!

She's so cute! It's interesting how different people learn in different ways.

Your first picture and her smile say it all. How wonderful that you are doing for her what she needs! And even better that it gives you special time with the boys. She is soooo cute!

Preschool years are so PRECIOUS! Good luck!

Great - we homeschooled for a year (kindergarten) - my son also wasn't interested in learning from me.

Now, we've come a full circle (sort of) - this is my daughter's senior year and she's "dropped out" of school to go to early college.
