Lo is a first grader! According to her she is no longer with the “babies” and is now basically a middle schooler. She was nervous to get a new teacher and see new friends but we got there early enough to bring up supplies and for me to hang around as long as she needed. She adored her teacher last year (so did I) and was nervous for the new teachers. She knew one and loved her already and we couldn’t ask for better teachers so I knew all would be well. She had asked me not to leave, even once she was settled in with friends, so I hung around and talked to other moms while they did their morning routine/announcements and afterwards I went to tell her I was going to head out and she said, “What are you still doing here?”.
Well there you go.
If I would’ve known I didn’t have to listen to announcements I would’ve bounced out early and got a coffee before heading home to the zoo I call home. 😉
Every year once the school year has begun and she’s had a couple of days to settle in we sit down and go over a few questions and I love seeing her answers change. This year her answers were much more grown up and she thought threw them. I swear she is going to be a politician one day because of the way she answers her questions. A little vague, very including and well thought out to not hurt anyones feelings.
