The girls had their first day of school. In their new school, in a new state. I am quite sure I was the most nervous. First, Kendall was dropped off. She was so excited that she almost forgot to say goodbye! Next was Savannah. She seemed just as nervous as me. Then she meet her teacher who was about her same height and then saw a starburst on her desk and she had a HUGE grin on her face.
Reese was last and I went in with her. I am pretty sure I was the only parent who's Kindergarten kept telling me..."MOM.....can you go now?" "Mom...................why are you still here?"
Reese is fiercely independent and she loves her teacher.
Both Savannah and Kendall meet new friends the first day which makes it easier!
:Things we had to adjust to::
*NO hallways. Only classrooms are indoors
*You eat outside on tables
*They have SWINGS on the playgrounds and trikes for Kindergardeners
*They have an electronic gate door that locks the minute the bell rings. You are lock into the school grounds our locked out. The only way in or out is through the office.
*Backpacks are hung up OUTSIDE
*Kindergarten is ALL DAY!
*They all learn Spanish in school
So a few differences from our previos frigid state! I did ask where do the kids eat when its cold outside. The person just look at me and said "cold???"
