Yesterday, in the midst of Asher's surgery day from hell was Rio's orientation to kindergarten. It was great and we had so much fun. I had heard lots of good things about our school and those seemed to be confirmed upon arrival.
Rio was very nervous and shy but at the same time very excited. She moved through several activity stations that were fun for her, but I'm guessing were somehow "testing" their skills in printing, drawing, numbers etc (there were teachers walking around taking notes). At the end of it Rio got a giant "loot bag" full of papers for the parents but also a ton of craft supplies and three great books. I think that sealed the deal for her.
When we talked about it later and I asked her her favourite part, she said "all of it". I think that's a pretty good sign she'll be ready when the time comes. I won't be however!
