Getting dressed up for the first day of school is one of my favorite childhood memories, and so now I'm passing it along to Lewie. I'm not sure how much fun he had posing for the camera yesterday morning again and again, but I'm thankful he let me have my once-a-year entertainment.

After numerous conversations with his teachers, we decided that Lewie wasn't quite ready to enter full-day kindergarten, and so we're doing Pre-K four days per week. At first, I was worried about our decision. After all, don't most five year-olds go to kindergarten? Some friends and family members were supportive; others weren't. Still, he's a young five, and I know he could benefit from another year of reviewing numbers and letters while still having the luxury of "days off" with Mommy, Daddy, and Gramy. His teachers who initiated this discussion seemed to think so too.
So...I made my decision; there's no turning back. Here's to one more year before kindergarten, school buses and report cards. He'll learn at his own pace, and that's just fine with me.
