Anyone else have a little one starting?

Cait will be and I'm already dreading having to be actually on time every day, rather than just 'before morning tea' at daycare...

DS is going into kindy (the general year for starting school over here) next year but our school starts with a three year old kindy so he has been going two days a week already. We've done the big uniform thing already. DD has been at school two years now so we're used to getting our sh!t together in the morning but it's a drag. I love the school holidays where we can I piss about in our PJs until 3pm.

I remember DD's first year so well. Sobbing while I stitched in the name tags. I cried for two weeks solid and quit my job so I wouldn't miss any more time with them. Total head-scramble!

Are you looking forward to it, dreading it or a bit of both?

Zack starts next year. He is very excited. He loved his orientation. I feel that will change within a week or so when he realises it is all day every day he has to go. It scares me having to have 4 kids ready to take him to school every day. I have to wake Ashton and Amahlia up at 9am every day now so that is going to have to change. Ash will also be starting pre school 2 days a week. BUT I am excited about having 2 days with just 2 kids at home.

TOTALLY not looking forward to 6 weeks with 4 kids home every day.

William is in Prep next year. I'm more than a little bit excited about having him out of the house 5 days a week! He's so social and energetic, it's been getting harder and harder to keep him occupied at home.

He's already got the uniform, 4 year old kinder here is quite structured, so he's already been attending the school. It'll be somewhat anti-climatic, actually...he'll just turn up in Feb and go to the building directly opposite the building he's been going to since June!

Liam is at Pre-Primary next year and i think it will be interesting as he has done Kindy this year which was 2 full and 1 half day and is always begging to go back but on the same token after kindy he crashes around 6pm. We have put the worn out to his eyesight being atrocious so now are slowly trying to get him used to wearing glasses all the time, and hoping by doing so at the start of school next year he will handle 5 long days with out trying to sleep in as getting the kids to school by 8am somedays isn't easy.

We have just found out who the teacher is and am very happy with that as i was worried they might move the kindy teacher up (she lacks communication skills as the best way to describe why I didn't like the thought of that)

So for us to get him ready we just need to get a few more sets of uniforms. New lunch box and drink bottle plus what is on the booklist when we receive that.

I'll be relieved when she starts, we stopped daycare/preschool over a week ago because we thought we'd be moving last week so it's going to be 9 weeks at home full time laugh.gif Slowly doing my head in.

We know who her teacher will be but because we're moving she doesn't really know anyone at the school. Did do the 5hr drive twice with both kids so she could go to orientation day though and I think that really helped her.

Will have to pick up her uniform next year as we won't be up there before the office closes but should have a week to do any alterations necessary. Did get to buy some great hair pretties that a mum makes out of uniform scraps from the uniform shop, they're gorgeous and I can see myself having to learn how ot make them very quickly because she loves them but will be losing them every second day biggrin.gif Still have to do all the other stuff like labels and lunchboxes though, let's get Christmas out of the way first!

A starts Kindy (NSW so first year school) next year. I cannot wait!!! Then both my boys will be at school 5 days a week. It is a real pity that I can't get any extra hours at work at the moment so will have both Thursday's and Friday's to myself ph34r.gif biggrin.gif biggrin.gif

I am not sure who is more excited, A or H. H can't wait for his little brother to be at school with him every day. At the moment we can't leave till the bell goes as A loves playing in the quad with all the big kids.

A lot of the kids he is going to school with he knows really well, between the preschool and siblings of H's school friends. We have organised a couple of play dates in January for them to all get together.

H is going up a size in uniform so A gets all the hand me downs, not that he realises that or seems to care, thankfully!

Liam starts next year too. He is really excited and I am looking forward to having both kids at school 5 days a week so I can enjoy some one on one time with Sienna. Will be great doing just the one drop off and pick up too. Haven't got uniform yet will do that early in the new year.

All this uniform chat has made me realise that I never put William's order in :S

We've got two school shirts, but I don't think it'll cut it five days a week. Four year old boys are MESSY, yo.

We don't have a dryer, so I can't even use that as a last minute option. Then again, with the heat in Perth at the moment, I could send him to school in wet shirts and they'd be dry before he walked in the front gate.

O starts prep next year - 5 days, after doing kindy this year - 3 days a week.. He is really exited to be starting prep..

As for his uniform the boys are light blue tops and grey pants/shorts. I will order his jackets with the logo when school starts up again..

E will start pre- kinder next year but that isn't until the end of the year, I may look at daycare or something 1-2 days a week so I have time to do study and photo shoots

J starts kindergarten next year and that's scary enough to me!

In Qld, so it's not compulsory and it's a 5 day fortnight during school hours. it's also a kindergarten that is at the school he will then start Prep at, so I like that he'll be familiar with the school grounds, library and church etc before Prep year starts. He's very excited though and I am excited for him as I think he'll really get a lot more out of it than daycare. It already makes me feel sad though, hate to see what I'm like when he starts Prep!!

I've ordered him 2 uniform shirts for kindy, figure he can just wear a plain shirt on the alternate Wednesday he'll go!

K is starting Prep (in Qld), she just finished the 5-day fortnight year of Kindy.

I've bought 5 uniforms (2 sport, 3 formal), as I hate washing and ironing ph34r.gif

Academically she's very ready, socially I think I'm more nervous than her (had a tough time at school myself, though she is infinitely more confident than me, and made lots of friends at Kindy). Probably my biggest concern is tiredness, coming off the 5-day fortnight thing (when they still have sleep time) and into full time school. She's also really into gymnastics and ballet, so a couple of days a week we won't be home until after 5.
