I have to say K has been a big adjustment for us! Though we have now been in school 3 weeks. For me it's the whole new schedule: drop off, pick up, base camp, making lunch and two snacks etc. And since dh and I work and have to get the other dd to the sitter, it really makes for a crazy morning.
DD1 school is k-12 so she is getting used to seeing the bigger kids around. They are doing so much more than I remember doing in K! They are starting letters, starting reading, doing little bits of math. I remember that more in first and second grade, but times have changed.
Personally the hardest part is for me....knowing I"ve sent this little person out of the house all week, so eventually someday she can go to a good college and have a good job, ugh. Not that I don't want that for her, it just seems like soooo much when they are 5 1/2. She's gone more hours a week than I am and I work full time!
Either way she is liking school. We had a few days of being overwhelmed with lunch and recess but now she is loving it again. OK, sorry to ramble! This is just all making my head spin a bit !
