Remembering Your First Time - Aloha Friday/Friday Follow

My son went to his school to do his assessment test today. The teacher said he did very well and she was quite surprise at most of the things he could do at his age, especially his motor skills for writing and drawing. I feel so proud of my baby.
The teacher seems very warm and nice. Her warm personality made me feel as ease to send my son to her class.
I did not send my children to Preschool. Dh did not think it was necessary, so I set out to teach them everything they would need to know for Kindergarten.
My son knows his numbers (1-100), letters (both speak and write them very well), colors and shapes in both Spanish and English. He draws, colors, do crafts and reads very well. I'm sometimes surprised at how well he knows words and what they mean.

I pretty much taught him everything that you'd teach for kindergarten, I think... The teacher that did his test, says he will have to help her in class!
My daughter aslo knows the same things at age 3 and the only thing she needs now is to learn to write her letters and numbers better. Whatever will I do with her for two more years! maybe egg her on to the genius gene? :)

I'm trying to make sure I know and learn everything that I need to be doing for him for school, but I still feel weird that he is gong to be away from me.
I'm already missing my sweetie.

I'm not at all familiar with the US school system so I try to learn as much as I can to be prepared.

Today I realized that no one told me about uniforms and I had assumed that because they were kindergarteners they might just wear regular clothing. I am so glad I called to find out what the policy was. He needs uniform!
 Orientation is Monday and he begins school on Tuesday....oh my heart.
Gotta make sure my camera has batteries!

 So my ALOHA FRIDAY question is: 
Do you remember going to kindergarten? or first school? 

I don't remember the first time going really, but I remember things in those first was also the time I started to lose my sight.....

  1. I remember my mother bringing me to Mrs. MacIntosh's class. I felt so grown up in my perfectly pleated dress that first day.

  2. I do remember going to Kindegarden and I loved it

  3. You have prepared him so well! He will be head and shoulders ahead of most of his peers. You should be very proud of your work with him.

  4. I will pray for you as you send him off to Kindergarten. That was so hard for me. It is so hard to watch our babies grow up right before our eyes.

    I remember I had a nice teacher in Kindergarten. I remember that it was only a half a day. I think I liked it : )

  5. I have a few scattered memories from preschool but only a few.

    I love the picture of your son and think you are doing a fabulous job teaching your kids.

  6. I have a few memories of Kindergarten. I was all nervous until I got to school. After that, I was excited to go play :). Do you speak Spanish? I need to work on mine from HS. I think it is great that you taught your son so much! He will do very well with such a great start.

  7. I have a horrible memory & do not remember the majority of my childhood.

The only thing I remember about kindergarten was there was this cutie girl who had these little tiny mouth & she got chosen to crown the Blessed Mother & not me & it broke my heart & I just never forgot it.
