last friday was the girls’ last day of school and my last day of work- the start of my maternity leave.
we made the decision to pull the girls out of their daycare in fremont (30-45 min away depending on traffic).
they will stay home with me on my maternity leave and help welcome baby brother!
bean will start kindergarten in August, right before her 5th birthday!
they will both, along with baby brother start a new daycare/”school” with Ms. Jamie at the end of the year when I go back to work.
those are the facts.
here are the feelings…
we loved the girls daycare. they have been there since they were both 5 months old. the macedos are like family. they love our girls. we knew they were in the next best place to being home.
the girls were shaped and molded into the wonderful little people they are today thanks in part (a big part) to the macedos.
we kept them there even after our move to livermore 2 years ago b/c we couldn’t find anything comparable to it in our new town.
we sacrificed and made the long drive everyday and paid a premium.
it was a very tough decision but with bean starting kindergarten in the fall it just wasn’t feasible any longer.
i am confident in our decision but it is still bitter sweet.
i am confident my girls have a solid foundation and will continue to thrive in their new schools and help baby brother become just as sweet, smart, curious, funny and spunky as they are.
i am confident the macedos will continue to be a part of our lives.
i am thankful for all the macedos have given our girls.
i am thankful we no longer have to make that drive!
the girls’ new schools are within 5 min of us- hooray!
so looking forward…
bean will start kindergarten in Aug
with a new big girl back pack
and about 100 other kids
PTO school activities here we come
there will be drop offs to 2 different schools- Sunset and Ms Jamie’s
logistics will have to be figured out b/c bean will be going to the afternoon kinder session
baby brother and emmy will have each other at Ms Jamie’s and Bean will join them when she isn’t in school
emmy may also join Ms Jamie’s daughter at the pre-school across the street later in the year
WE HAVE A KINDERGARTENER! how did that happen??!!
i will be taking limited Holiday Family Photo sessions on the weekends only in September, October and November. Book early to reserve your spot.
*stay tuned* for my next Give Back Project that will benefit The Walk to End Alzheimers.
