So was it 3rd grade or 4th, Newbie? I'm sure it will go well. She sounds very eager for school and ready to learn.

Another thing: because of dh's new job, we may have to move...again. i don't want to put this kid in school next week only to pull her out again. It will be a huge adjustment for her as it is, I don't want to uproot her as soon as she is figuring out how to navigate this school thing. Like I said, I don't think the adjustment will be as big a deal for her little sister, dd2 is just one of those unflappable people. dd1...not so much.
since its just a couple of months, i dont see why you should put her in school right now. i agree with you. that sounds pointless.
instead i'd have her go online and work on her stuff like khan academy apart from all else she is doing.
my youngest started PS in 3rd grade after unschooling and she did wonderfully!

How is school going for your daughter?
We've had some big changes recently and my kids just transitioned from homeschooling to public school. So far it's going really well!
My daughter (2nd grade) was behind in her spelling and writing. Her teacher told us about that early in the school year. We've worked on extra writing at home and now she is all caught up.
I am still very glad that we homeschooled in those early years. I feel that my daughter is approaching school with the excitement of a kindergartner and the more advanced maturity of an 8 year old. Win win, right?
I hope your daughter is adjusting well! My daughter could have gone into 2nd or 3rd grade with her summer birthday. I think she's in the right place on the older side of her grade. She feels otherwise! She told me (again) last night that she would rather be homeschooled so that she could do 3rd grade work.
