Claire had an exercise at school today that involved listing “what makes me excited about kindergarten, and what makes me nervous about kindergarten!” Claire illustrated each item with a little picture. Claire is excited that her classmate Lyla will be there and about doing homework. There it is for the record… excited about homework. She is nervous about making new friends and “because it will be tricky in kindergarten”. I have mentioned the early kindergarten start time to her, but it may not have hit her yet, or else she would have listed being nervous about getting to school every day by 7:40. At least I would have listed that one.
