OliviaOlivia's first week of Kindergarten went well, she loves it. She wakes up bright and early (6-6:30)excited for a new day of school even though she has afternoon Kindergarten. She has a wonderful teacher and there are lots of friendly kids in the class.
My hubby and I and Claire all took Olivia to her first day of Kindergarten. The parents have to learn the routine as much as the Kindergarteners. We helped her with her lunch (at 10:45 am for afternoon Kindergarten!) and then we walked with the group to the classroom. Several of us parents stayed in the classroom to check it out. It seemed hard for many of the parents to let go. We just stayed long enough to see how they start their day. When I picked her up after school, the first words out of her mouth were "I had fun there!".
On Friday, Olivia wanted to get the 'hot lunch' because it was pizza, I brought Claire along too and she had pizza, too. They loved it!
Today was Claire's first day of Preschool. She was so excited, she ran in circles when we got there. Olivia and I said our good byes....Claire seemed unusually quiet. When I picked her up at 2pm, one of the teachers said she was quiet. I thought maybe she missed her sister. Later, Claire did pipe up and say "I missed you lots Mommy". When I saw her in the playground, she shouted "Mommy!" and ran straight for me and gave me a huge hug....she was so cute!
