‘Tis the season– wrapping up one year, ready to start another. Even though I don’t yet have Michael’s portfolio completed or his evaluation set up (note to self: must get on that), I’m already planning ahead for next year. For us, next year begins on the very first day we can start counting towards the 2009-2010 school year, July 1.
I’ve already warned my husband that I want a planning day. I’m kicking him and 4 kids out for the day–maybe even overnight if Daniel can stand it–and planning out the next school. With Nicholas starting kindergarten next year, Katie Grace in third (and my first year of having to report her to the state!), and Michael in fifth/sixth, and two sets of standardised tests to get through, I think planning ahead can only help.
