Here we go again! More milestones – of the first day of school type!
Charlie had his first day of preschool today and Maria her first day of First Grade. Both had great days. Both were tired tonight – Especially Charlie! But his teachers said he just went with the flow and it wasn’t like he was the new kid at all. Of course, it helps that they all know him as Maria’s little brother!
Maria declared the new girl in her class her new Best Friend in the car ride home from after school care. Which is good, considering her Kindergarten BFF is at a different school this year. And she came home with homework (1/2 page of numbers). She has also been asked to read 20 minutes a day. So we set up a little table in her room, where she can work without Charlie and I showed her how to set the timer to make sure she gets 20 minutes in.
