My son's first day of school is less than a month away. I can't wait
to see my tuition dollars at work. Yes, I complain an awful lot about
the price, and I have high expectations, (When they start
kindergarten, any kid can go to Harvard, MIT or West Point) but I am
just looking forward to his artwork, learning cool things (religious
and otherwise) and making new friends. Watching him over the past few
years, I've made generalizations - Year 1 is about physical growth,
year 2 about cognitive growth - maybe years 3 and 4 are about social
growth - as I watch him actually learn to play with his friends rather
than alongside them.
I also hope that his friends and school will provide my wife and I in
subduing his mischievous side - I wonder where he gets that from :).
