Austin's preschool graduation was yesterday. He did such a good job. I am so proud of him. The class sang "Mr. Golden Sun" and "The B-I-B-L-E" and Austin was so adorable up there singing along. He looked shy but had his smile on and just made me so proud. I nearly teared up a couple times while he was up there. He is the smallest boy and the 2nd smallest in his class and was just so stinking cute.
After the graduation I went back to my class to teach and about a 1/2 hour later I get called down to the kindergarten room for a quick meeting of the minds with the principal, K teacher, pre-K teacher, and daycare director. They want us to put Austin in Kindergarten next year. They think he is ready, Joe and I are worried about his maturity but they seem to think he'll be ok. They definitely think he is smart enough. So it looks like we will be going straight to Kindergarten as opposed to young 5's. If by chance it doesn't work out there is nothing wrong with having him do two years of Kindergarten but they are thinking he'll flourish. And they were right in moving him up to the 4 year old program from the 3's back in September. I think he'll be ok, but as always it's nerve-wracking. But honestly, I'm overjoyed that Austin is doing so well. He's thriving! I apparently do not give him enough credit.
