    Wondering where the time went.
    A little apprehensive, but not much - he's a pretty social kid and pretty bright. The only thing we're a little worried about is attention span - he's a November baby, so he'll only be 4 when he starts.

    Ours is a November kid too, soon going to have to decide when he should start school. Time sure does go by fast though! My parents always said that and I kinda laughed at them...

    Ohhh!!

    Congrats!!

    I was proud on my son's first day and so happy for him.

    Then in the afternoon at home, I layed down and cried.

    It was rather weird. Just one of those parent things I guess. :lol:

    I had to wait untill I was 5 years old to start.
    Then I turned 6 in November.

    In the last couple of years. Nova Scotia had a different starting schedule than the rest of the country so they changed it to bring it in line - makes things a lot easier for people who have to move around a lot with kids (military, for example).
