My triplets are going into Kindy this year and I'm freaking out! My friend said she's never seen anyone so bummed about their kids going to school before. At back to school night, she told me I looked like I was going to a funeral.
They all went to pre-k last year, MWF for 2.5 hours. It was great actually! They did well and had fun.
We considered private school but just can't afford it. So public school, which they are enrolled to be in, starts Tuesday. We are strongly considering HS. But I'm just so overwhelmed at the thought! I have no plans! No curriculum. No home school groups... though I'm sure I could find some.
I've read countless articles and blogs from people who HS and I agree wtih the beneifits they talk about. And the downfalls of public school that they write about make sense to me too. But I can't help but wonder if the kids will be at a disadvantage, or regret that they did not have the school experience that the majority of kids in life have.
Where will they make new friends? We have familiy friends and the kids are really close, but that's about it. They still keep in touch with some of their pre-k pals, and then there are people at church that we could try to hang out with too. We do put them in sports, dance, etc... but ya know, they don't really form friendships because you go to class, have to pay attention, and then you leave.
I'd love any words of wisdom!
