It’s so hard to believe that Caitlyn graduated from Preschool last Friday. She truly enjoyed going, even with some of the issues that she had. Her first day of preschool was back on September 16th 2008. Remember how she wouldn’t eat snack for most of the first year – no problem there anymore.
Ms Maggie, the director of the preschool, talked about each of the children. She started with Caitlyn and has such wonderful things to say about her. She thanked us for trusting them with her. We can’t wait until Hanna turns 3 to be able to join them!

She had this funny smirk on her face the whole time – not sure why, she looked like she was mad, but said that she wasn’t.

We also received the wonderful news that Caitlyn got accepted into the Dry Creek School District and will be attending Antelope Meadows Elementary School with most of her preschool friends. We had put in for an interdistrict transfer back in February. I called over the district office for our home school in the beginning of May to see if they had released Caitlyn. They said “yes we released her as of March 4” – and I replied, “and you didn’t think to inform us?” “nope that’s the new school districts business now” Ok – whatever! So I called over the Dry Creek office and found out that they would be making their decisions during that week. We finally received a letter in the mail about 2 weeks ago, letting us know that Caitlyn had been accepted. Such a relief. We’re so happy that she will be able to continue on with many of her preschool friends – the acceptance has already been established over the past 2 years. I turned in a letter to the staff with her registration packet introducing Caty. I used one of the sample letters from the POLP group and will use the other to pass out to the parents of her classmates once school starts. One of Caty’s preschool friends moms is a teacher at Antelope Meadows, and she let me know that the letter was read and passed out to all of the staff at the latest staff meeting. Kellie said that everyone is so excited to have Caitlyn as part of their school.
We’re looking forward to the first day of kindergarten with is August 10th.
