We’re going to visit our first of 3 pre-school programs to check them out for “IT-Boy-ness” today. I had grand plans to put together a huge list of questions to ask everyone at the program, but only mustered about 5. If anyone has any suggestions for evaluating a program, sort of like a link to a pre-made list that I can cut and paste into my handy-dandy keep track of things spreadsheet, feel free to let me know.
I get the feeling I’m juts going to stand in the room staring at things, not asking questions. I hope it doesn’t come to that. Mr. IT is coming as well, so hopefully he’ll step up to the plate for this one. I have faith. He’ll know why we’re here.
In related family news, Little IT’s swim team had their last meet today, which they won, bringing their record to 4-1 for the summer. Pretty darn good if you ask me. She told me yesterday that she LOVES the meets but HATES the practices. She *might* do the team next summer, but no way would she do one during the school year. I admit I force her into swimming a bit – she has the perfect shape for it, and she’s kinda good at it. But her passion isn’t there. It’s like she said yesterday after I was trying to encourage her to swim by saying that swimming could be her sport. “How do you know soccer won’t be my sport? It’s what I want to do.” Whoa. Game over. Soccer it is. Swimming can wait till she goes to middle school and can swim on their team. Only if she wants to. She knows why she’s here, I just have to make sure I listen to her.
