It's good to have friends in high places. I don't mean knowing people who can get you into country clubs or hot restaurants; I mean people who can get you a deal.
In California, the minimum age to enter kindergarten has just been changed. Previously, a child had to have been five by December 2 of the school year, one of the latest dates in the nation. The new date is September 1 and will be phased in over the next few years. I am conflicted over the change.
