Well we did. We have the first and second day of preschool under our belts and you know what? The earth didn't shake. We got out of the house on time - with a little help via a first day donut. The kiddo spent two and a half hours with other adults and children. He came home. He has been excited to tell me that on day one he learned "the rules" and on day two he learned "about logs". There hasn't been any giant rift in our life and he did not come home raging against church and parental authority (give it time I guess). It was just a new thing to our day and he likes it and it's not so bad. He still came home and played - using that imagination they did not manage to squash by making him conform to coloring a paper crayon! ::wink wink::
Now of course I'm not going to do what drives me crazy in the bloggin world .... "We're on Day 2 of our life changing new schematic/curriculum/life adventure and it's going great and will continue to do so!" Who knows what tomorrow brings, let alone next year, but so far so good. We did it.
It's been a good practise in following what's best for him - not what I hope is best based on parenting trends or my own, very idealist, expectations.
We did it. We're going back tomorrow. The world didn't implode. Go Team.
