Little Biker

Nefarious did some sans-training wheel biking last year, but not enough to really be comfortable. I figure we’d better get that skill solid before it’s too late, so we did lots of two wheel biking at the park that was quite successful, although she has more than a few minor scrapes and bruises. We ran into friends at the park — a happily common experience — and the play changed to swing shenanigans and sand castles. Later in the evening, we made giant sized bubble blowers and Nefarious and a friend must have spent an hour chasing bubbles up and down the laneway… I forgot just how fun that is.

Tomorrow is the last day of school — or maybe today was, because tomorrow is “sports day”, which I think is more of a BBQ, so of course I’ll be going in to help out… Then three years of hard work pay off with a big graduation concert at week’s end. All-in-all the Montessori Casa (their three year kindergarten program) experience has been excellent and I’m very happy with Nefarious’s academic skills (reading and writing especially) as well as the social benefits. I would recommend it to parents who are in a position to take advantage of it.

    my parents were smart enough to enroll me in a Montessori school when I was a kid, and I’m only just now beginning to appreciate the value of it. at the time, I had no idea that being able to read when you entered public education was actually significant.

    so, yeah. I second Shannon in this. it’s a great move, so long as you’re able to do it.

Wow Shannon, that's really annoying! What is it, 1997 on Geocities? Retroweb is NOT cool!
