TIME: 8:15 AM
PLACE: School playground
SUBJECT: MonkeyBoy, StellaDella and Friend
Today was the first day of school, well, until 11:30am anyway. It was a cloudy and overcast morning and the pictures I took in our “1st day of school” spot on the front lawn look gloomy because of that. Since tomorrow is the 1st full day, I will take pictures again and they will count for first day shots. The kids will roll their eyes at me, but too bad, so sad! I’m the mom and I can call a photo do-over if I want to!
Our school does what is called a “Walk and Talk” in the morning from 8am until the first bell rings at 8:20am. When the kids arrive at school, they walk in a large circle around the playground and talk to their friends. MB and his classmate took SD under their wings during Walk and Talk this morning. SD was disappointed, she thought that she would get to climb and slide on the play structure until school began. And apparently she was disappointed in the curriculum as well. While we were eating lunch, she informed me that “Mrs. K--- did not teach me how to read today!” Hmmph, tomorrow I shall have to tell Mrs. K--- that I am very displeased with the fact that SD cannot read yet and that my faith in her ability to teach kindergarten is quite shaken. ;)
