The thing about twins is that everything costs double. Preschool is no exception. Therefore, they are not going until next year, the year right before kindergarten. And it seems like they are the only 3.5 year olds on the planet not starting preschool this fall. There are lots of neighbor kids the same age as the girls and they all started preschool this week :(
I used to wonder what the big rush was anyway to put your kids in preschool the second they turn 2.5 or 3, depending on when their birthday is, since back in my day everyone just went the year before kindergarten, but now I get it. They want that break! Or, they're in daycare anyway so might as well maximze their time. Anyway, I have another year to go before I can enjoy a few hours 3 times a week to run errards, go to the gym, get a latte by myself or with other moms, etc. Ahhh, I can't wait.
