Hi there, just thought I would introduce myself. I have a gradeschooler...our daughter is named Olivia and she's going into first grade; we live in Canada so she started school when she was 5 in grade primary which is the equivalent to senior kindergarten. We moved to the community beside the village where I grew up last year, and O. is lucky enough to be going to a fantastic small school. My grandmother taught at the school for 20 years (grade 3) and both my mother and aunt attended there as well. There were only 16 kids in the grade primary class, only one class, so all those kids will be in her grade in the fall as well. Olivia is reading at about a grade 3-4 year level, she loves drama club, various sports, she's in swimming lessons, Sparks (Brownies for 5-6 yr olds) and she's the height and weight of an 8 or 9 year old. She also has glasses but seems to see just fine without them.

We also have a 5 year old son named Benjamin who has global delays/special needs. He lives with my mother and her husband 5 mins from us. It's a complicated situation, but he knows we are his parents and he needs one-on-one care. He was supposed to start school in the fall, but we (my husband, my Mom, her husband and I) have decided it's best that he wait a year, so he will be attending another year of preschool once September is here. He also loves learning, reading, etc.

Oh my name is Abbe-forgot to mention that!

Hi Amber, thank you! It's nice to "meet" you...love your daughters' names. Arianna is a favourite of mine.

Welcome

My name is Erica and I also have a 1st grader. Brinlee turned 6 in May. I also have a 3 year old, Isabel.

Brinlee likes to dance, loves art, and is also in Girl Scouts (getting ready to bridge from a Daisy to a Brownie).
