Need advice with my daughter repeating k or moving on to 1stgrade. Heres the situation....... my daughters bday is 9/12 and in actuality based on the cutoff in my state of 9/1, she actually should be going into k this new coming school year 2013-2014. However, opposite to how many parents actually do, I put her in k ahead of time at a private school that did not have an age requirement. I did this becuase I felt she was ready and why not give her a head start! I figured if she didnt do that well she would always just do k again at her right age. Now, she just graduated k and actually did very well, made straight A all year long. Now that she is actually k eligible and moving to public school, I am actually to my surprise, being given the optionof putting her in k again solely based on age or promoting to 1st since she already completed k. And this is where the dilemma begins! I am very hesitant to put her in 1st being the youngest always from here on out. The school had her come in to assess her and she actually scored at a mid 1st grade level and based on this the reading speciailist suggested she go into first. However, even with that I dont know why my gut is telling me to just put her in k again! Im looking at all aspects of it! I know academically she might be bored in k again, but socially she is very very shy! To the point where she barely talked to her teacher or the other kids in k until about well into the 3rd month of school! My gut tells me that being the oldest vs the youngest would absolutely help her with this. But should a child really just be held back due to shyness? Again I want to stress that agewise she never should have been in k at the private school, and that I basically accelerated her. I never thought she would do so well axademically, so now I feel guilty holding her back from going to 1st! What do I do? I really just want the best for my daughter! Please help with some advice.

I miss traveling with my husband. Has anyone found a specific site regarding cruising for widow/widowers or any sightseeing trips. Not interested in being with couples and kids,,,I realize a cruise ship will have a portion size of families and couples, but perhaps they also put together a part of the cruise ship for groups of widows/widowers????
