If the school district really wants kids in Kindergarten so badly, and wants them to register early, you would think they would be a little easier to work with.
I took Seth to register for Kindergarten this year. This is hard for me because, with all my heart, I want to homeschool, but I know it is not the right choice for us at this time. Sucks.
So, I trek to the Board of Education building with all 3 hooligans in tow. Looks like everyone else in Logan decided to do this today also. It is hot, crowded, I lose Amelia 2.5 thousand times and then she has to pee. So, we race to the potty, she pees, we go back and get in line (nice guy saved my place). We get to our first stop and find out that because I am only exempting Seth from a couple of vaccinations, I need the records of everything he's had to this point. Ok. I'm working on that. He's had 3 doctors in his 4.5 years of life and we don't have a vaccination card that tells us the dates that he's had everything. So, I need that and I need to come back today, tomorrow, Friday, Monday or Tuesday. Sure.
So, I come home call the Doctor's office to see if I can get Seth in for his shots. They won't do the shots until he has his Kindergarten well child exam. The soonest they can get me in? Tuesday afternoon...after Kindergarten registration has closed.
Why doesn't anyone tell you MONTHS before not DAYS before what you will need to register your child for school? Why do the ladies at the registration have to be SO rude when you tell them that you are working on getting all of his records together? Why won't the doc's office in Salt Lake call me back so I can get his records when I am down there tomorrow?
Why does he have to go to school? Can't I just have him my little guy for a bit longer?
