Off to school
My baby, who is actually 6½ now, starts pre school next week! She is sooo excited. I can't believe she is just about to embark on one of the most important times of her life. Little brother gets his turn next year - look out! Here in Finland they don't start 'proper' school until 7. At 6 they go to preschool which basically prepares them for the school day and what to expect. On all accounts the Finnish education system is supposed to be one of the best around - we shall see! The boy starts daycare again next week, he quite looking forward to going back for a change but I think that has to do with the fact that they have completely renovated the playground, swings , slides, basket ball area - lots of fun. I'll let you know what he thinks next week!
