Today is the first day of school here. My older two left at 7 am and my third left at 11 am. It’s hard to believe I only have on child at home now. My oldest is in 4th grade, my second in 1st grade and my third in kindergarten. They will be home soon. The house is so quiet after the noisiness of summer…
My kindergartener woke up this morning and suddenly told me he didn’t want to go to school. It’s seems he had a dream that he got all Fs in school. I had to reassure him that he didn’t have to worry about grades just yet. 🙂 He’s not been to preschool but he does know to read, write and do basic math so he should be fine in school! It’ll just be a while for him to get used to the schedule and routine of school and classroom. I know he will probably doze off in the bus on the way home but his older brother are with him, so I am not really worried.
The oldest has mixed feelings, I think. He knows that fourth grade means a lot of work especially since he will have make up work for one day of school, which he will miss when he goes to the G&T program. With Taekwondo, chess classes and keyboard practice added to the mix, he’s not going to have time for his precious Playstation games until the weekends. 😉
The second little fellow is in the best little place I think. He’s in first grade where there’s not too much pressure. He’s got a good teacher and he’s going to have fun before things get serious as they do in second grade. He does have the same extra curricular activities as the older boy but he’s just starting out in all of them… so again not a whole lot is expected of him except to have fun at them
Here are pictures of them leaving for the first day of school.
