This year was my first year 1) in full-time school, and 2) in public school. And guess what? No surprise, I LOVE IT!!!
Daddy takes me to school most days, and he walked me in for my first day.
It was a bit of an adjustment for all of us: early drop-off, making lunches, etc. It took about a week for mommy & daddy to feel human again, but we’ve got it all down now! So far, I am reading on a 2nd grade level, and comprehending everything else exactly where I should be. I do need to work on my handwriting and spelling (I’ve been told I get my creative spelling from my daddy). But I’ve already:
made a new best friend (Sophie)
been assigned to help my classmate Avalin (who has diabetes)
“helped” teach my class (they didn’t really listen to me)
been chosen as Student of the Month (for kindness)
been on a field trip to the Dallas Aquarium (daddy came as a chaperone)
watched baby ducklings hatch (as part of a science lesson)
been assigned to a book club (since my reading is advanced)
I do get excited on days when I don’t have school because I can “sleep in” (which means I basically sleep 15 minutes longer), but I am always excited when Monday rolls around!
