When we got the order form for a yearbook I was aghast. I refused to get a yearbook for my Kindergartner. How ridiculous it seemed.
I even let the order date pass.
That's when the nagging feeling started in the back of my head.
I remember my friends from when I was her age. Some of them moved away and I always wished I'd had a way to contact them. What better way to have that than to have a yearbook?
Sure, I still think it's silly for a Kindergartner to have a yearbook and chances are she is the only one in her class ordering one. But, then I considered that she will remember the friendships she has with these kids for a long time and she should have some kind of keepsake of them, right?
The order date passed, yes, but I was still able to get an order in. I guess I was lucky the school is so flexible that way.
The next day, we received the flyer about the school dance.
That's definitely where I draw the line! No school dance for this girl!
Yes, I'm certifiable!Are schools getting out of hand with yearbooks and school activities in the primary grades? Where do you draw the line for school activities that you consider to be "too much" or "too grown up" for you kids?
