First Day of School 2010

First day of school! First day of school! Ah, yes. Late summer came again and so did the start of school. Lucy was very excited to start first grade and was more than ready. She got a fantastic teacher who was new to Altamont Creek this year, and I am so thrilled for her! She loves it every day and actually gets upset at the prospect of missing school. She's been out only one day so far though, so not to worry. She is reading, writing and doing math with gusto. We are so proud! She's also making a few new friends. It's good to see her adjusting fairly well to the big change of six-hour long school days, plus soccer, Girl Scouts, homework and soon ballet, as well as the other stuff that comes with being part of our busy family.

Annabel started preschool in September and loves it too. She's also making new friends this year and, as always, is the social butterfly. I am amazed at how well she can make herself at home after a bit and really settle into it all. It's wonderful to see her play so well with new friends! She's also starting to learn letters and more, too, so we are really happy that she's embracing it all. She also started a new activity this year, ballet, with a couple of her playgroup friends. Angelina Ballerina move over! Annabel Ballerina is on the scene and practicing for the Nutcracker performance this December.

Sammy also started Mommy and Me preschool this year. Wow! Two years old already and going to his class with Mommy. It's kind of bittersweet for me, as his mommy, to see my baby growing up, yet he absolutely is ready to roll. He does all the art projects and seems to enjoy all the classroom activities. A good sign for the future, for sure!

August 23, 2010. First day of first grade for Lucy. She's looking pretty excited!


She can't wait until the door opens! Annabel wanted to join her too.


Lucy with Connor, our neighbor. They are in the same class this year. They are similar, and it's fun to see them growing up together.
