I spent the last week before Christmas photocopying, filling in little squares, stuffing envelopes and addressing stamped postcards back to myself. Times about 30. The Boy’s kindergarten applications to various CPS schools. I’ve received 18 postcards back acknowledging receipt of his/our application. He’ll be tested by GEAP sometime before March, and then the assignments come out. All I can do is cross my fingers, say a few prayers, and hope like crazy that he gets into a decent public school.
