Although we are only going to be here for a short time longer, we decided to take the opportunity to send Talia to kindergarten. We thought it would be good for her to have a little classroom experience and interact with some kids from her own culture.
Talia was so excited to start school and reveled in every minute of preparation.
Unlike some of her classmates on the first day of school, Talia didn’t shed a single tear. At one point after dropping her off in her classroom she turned around and saw me standing there and said, “Why are you still here?”
With Daddy at the same school where he went to kindergarten.Her own pose idea. Her second cousin is in her class!After her first day we asked her what her favorite thing was. Her answer was, “Everything!”
She’s also made a goal for herself to make as many friends as she can. Every day she’s come home to report one or two new ones.
It really seems to be a good experience for her. Although there were no tears when we dropped her off at school, she did cry when she got home and we didn’t have a “welcome home from your first day of kindergarten” gift waiting for her. I have no idea where she even got that idea! Ryan, being a sweet Dad, ran out and surprised her with an ice cream cone to reassure our new kindergartener that we were indeed proud of her. =)
Do you remember your first day of school?
