Blessed and wonderful is the path of education


Next week my son will start kindergarten. Earlier this summer, we received a packet from the school to help ensure that he is prepared. The packet included a suggested reading list, some flashcards and a list of tasks our son should be able to complete, skills he should possess. In the three years Silvio has been in preschool, he’s certainly built some skills, but I realize all of this preparation has been coupled with preparation at home focused on who he is becoming.
