A Warrior, A Buff and Blue, or A Bulldog????

So my son is now five. Actually, he's been five since August of 2010. The time has come to decide what schools we wanted him to go to for Kindergarten. Since he is considered a "late born", he is attending school as a Junior Kindergartener. We've chosen to try out for three different schools, Kamehameha, Punahou, and Le Jardin. He's already been through the testing process for Punahou. Now we wait. He's gone through the first phase for Kamehameha and are waiting to hear if he's going to the second phase. So now we're waiting. Finally, he will be testing and interviewing this weekend for Le Jardin. After that, we will wait. Filling out the applications was a breeze. Taking him to the testing, a little on edge, but ok. Now, THE WAIT. I think that's the hardest part of the whole process. Of course as every parent does, we're hoping that he gets in to all three. I just hope that he didn't feel pressure. We pretty much made every effort to not push him. We told him that he was going to meet new friends and new teachers at some new schools. While he was there, they would play different games and ask him some questions. He was cool with that since my son actually likes to meet new people and experience new things. Unfortunately, we have to be patient, since it is a virtue, and wait until at latest the end of April just to see what new adventure lies ahead for our son. If he gets in, then awesome and if he doesn't, that just means that it wasn't meant to be. But of course, we would still LOVE to have A Warrior, A Buff and Blue or A Bulldog. LOL.

Patience is a virtue... and also a huge pain in the ass. good luck playing the waiting game!

This is interesting. So I take it these are private schools that you have chosen over public?
