Being from Georgia, Pigeon Forge is a quick get away for our family. For the past few years our church goes for a weekend to fellowship and have a great time. We usually stay at the same place and do the same thing...ride go karts, do  a little shopping, and go to Cades Cove for service in one of the old churches or even out in a field and have lunch afterwards. My family and I (a 3 year old and 5 year old)  are planning a weekend get away back to Pigeon Forge and I would like to do something different. What are some things that you have done with your family there? What did you Not enjoy?
I am constantly amazed at how fast time is flying by. Especially now that I have children. It is incredibly hard for me because my oldest son will be registering for kindergarten soon...Where has the time gone? It was not too long ago that I was up all night with him just about every night for two years and working at a job outside of the home. How I wished for some rest...Then it happened, the night his new baby brother came home from the hospital (which happened to be my oldest birthday) he slept through the night and has been ever since. Now, how I miss that time together. Each phase that he has gone through up until I miss it. My mother often tells me how each phase will soon pass and how it does.

Since I was able to stay at home since my oldest was about 1 1/2 he was getting very attached and we knew this time of starting kindergarten was soon approaching we enrolled him in a pre-k program at a local church. I had a very hard time letting go but he loves it and we did not have to prepare him at all. He visited once and loved it. Granted it is only 3 days a week for 4 hours, I wonder how he will adjust to kindergarten.

How have you prepared your child as well as yourself for starting kindergarten?
