So, the decision has been made in regards to the YC's school placement. It was a last minute decision, that then changed again the next morning. . . Yes, you read that right! Monday night the decision was School B & K-prep class. Tuesday morning the husband called from the airport and had changed his mind. So now YC will be returning to School A, and their "4 yr. old" class. This throws a little bit of a wrench into my plans, but adjustments have been made, and it's going to be a busy year.
To be honest with you, I don't agree with the decision. Now before you get upset, I recognize that he is not my child, and so it doesn't really matter what I think, but I am his nanny, and I do think about these things. I'm afraid he's going to be completely bored and that this boredom will create more issues than were present last year. Maybe I'm wrong - in fact I hope that I am wrong, because as much as he can bring out the worst in me at times, I care about that little boy and his future. However, let's just say I'm glad I'm not the one taking him to school on the first day. I'm not really sure how he's going to react, because he's visited two other schools and told (at different times) that he's going to them. So it'll be interesting to see his reaction. He may not care, or even realize what's going on, but heaven help up if he does and doesn't like it! LOL
I will try and keep you posted! School A starts in two weeks, so he's got a little more summer left. The other two kids started on Monday and are getting back into the swing of things. The OC has an AP class this year, and she's freaking out that they already have a quiz [or test] tomorrow over their summer reading. The MC started middle school this year and everyday comes home with another "boy story!!" It's gonna be a fun ride this year. . . Stick around for it - I might need to hold your hand!!
