to hold them back...or move them on

Last year I was faced with the idea of holding Nash back and have him repeat Kindergarten.  He was not doing well and was young.  I had meetings with his teacher, the counselor and principal all agreed...to hold him back.

I did.

It is something many parents face at this time of year.

Last year....I was not really sure I was making a good decision. 

But, on the first day of school...I knew I had made the greatest decision for him!  Who....I say who doesn't love kindergarten?  And who wouldn't love a bonus year...to get acclimated to your surroundings and the expectations placed on you.

I am SO VERY GLAD I held Nash back.  He is flourishing!  And now...is fully prepared to face 1st grade next year.

I have a few years before I have to deal with school issues, but I can only image what a difficult decision that was for you. He looks very happy, what a cutie!
