Fourth Grade

I'm trying to figure out why fourth grade feels like such a big deal in my head.

I mean, it's not like going into sixth. There's no change in school. There's no shift into teenage years (which I am really not ready for).

But, okay, things that it is:

* A different class level. The Montessori classes are organized in first- through third-grade, and fourth-and-fifth grade. So she's moving up to the upper hall, with the Big Kids.

No one from her 1-3 class is in her new class, incidentally. There is a girl from her Girl Scout troop there, as well as one girl that I know she knows from her after-school program.

* She's starting Junior Girl Scouts. This is the sort of Girl Scout that you non-Girl-Scout-people visualize when you hear "Girl Scout" - the preteens in the green uniforms. She's not a Brownie anymore!

It just feels like she's moved up.

I worry sometimes that I shelter her overmuch. *fret*

Still. I'm really looking forward to picking her up today and hearing all about fourth grade. And touring this new after-school program.
