Just popping in to say hi. This is Sue aka playwithlights. I don't think I know a lot of the people who are still here and a few of you I never lost touch with. I was reading old posts back from 2005 and it made me sad and also see how much I have grown up in the past 5-6 years. Crazy. For those of you who do know me and Gage, I will tell you a bit about him. He is in preschool right now because we decided to hold him back because of his birthday being only a few days from the cut off. We do see that it was best for him socially. He is really into drawing and he will be taking some drawing classes over the summer. Gage is extremely into monster trucks. We went to see Monster Jam in January and he thought it was the best thing ever.
I guess that is all I have to say for now. I hope all is well with everybody. I may stick around for awhile if that is okay with everyone.

I remember you. I'm Chrystal. (I think I still had the same screen name back then?) Ben is my 5 y/o... he was the last one born in our DDC (Dec 1st). We're homeschooling him. Daniel is my 2 year old.

Oh my gosh...of course I know you and Gage! I wish we would not have lost touch over the past few years...but, I am so glad that we can catch up here and on Facebook. Gage sounds like he is doing great (Ahren likes drawing too)...we will need pictures of him. You have a little girl too right? Please stick around....and post with us!

Hellosue! I think you were one of the firsts in our DDC?

What is your cut-off age for school? It's Sept 1 here, so Ava is in Pre-K.

Glad we connected on FB awhile back.

Yes I was one of the first people here.

Our school cut off date is December 1st. Since Gage's birthday is November 22nd we figured it was better to just wait.

It won't let me post a picture on here until I have 10 posts, so when I get 10 I will post one lol

I have heard that they are going to be changing it here to Sept 1st but I have no idea when that will happen. It makes me question if I should hold my daughter back too since her birthday is October 2nd. I may not have a choice if they start doing that within the next 2 years. Do they offer all day Kindergarten where you are at?

Our cutoff date is Sept 1st, but back when we went to school it was Dec 1st, and they moved it up a month at a time about 20 years ago.

BTW, Hi Sue, I was thinking about you the other night because I remember (for some reason) you saying you would sing Castle On a Cloud when you were pregnant. And now that is Gretchen's favorite good night song (I change Cosette to Gretchen)

Hi Sue, nice to have you back. We held my son TJ back too, our cut-off in CT is Jan. 1st. I heard CT is changing the date here too. I have been trying to find out more information about it because my second son is has an early Sept. birthday.

How old is your daughter?

D - I don't remember anyone doing that. Now I'm curious who it was.

Cutoff here is either Sept or Oct 1st, depending on the school.

Hey Sue! welcome back... i definitely remember you, although I might have still been a lurker back when you were posting. I'm Janine. My daughter is Hazel.

Our cut off here is 9/1 so Hazel is in Pre-K (this is her 3rd year in pre-K)... she is beyond excited to start K next year.

Anyway, I can't wait for you to post a picture of Gage! And (a very late) congrats on your daughter! let's see that beautiful baby, too! I hope you stick around.

ok, it wasn't you, but you had posted in the thread it was in. Looking for Nursery Rhymes and songs

That's not too bad for it being almost 6 years ago.
