New School Year

Caroline is now a first grader. All the cliches are so appropriate... Where did the time go? Time flies. I could go on and on. A year ago we thought for sure that Caroline would continue on at her Montessori school for a few more years. I couldn't imagine that she would be ready to tackle our neighborhood public school. I knew that academically she would be more than fine but socially... I just wasn't sure.

On Wednesday, we walked with all of our neighborhood friends, to school. It was wonderful to be part of this community and to see Caroline running ahead to catch up with her girls. By Thursday, I think she realized that all would be ok but she was scared to admit it- months of complaining about switching schools couldn't be thrown away after one day. There were still a fair number of complaints. By Friday, she walked to school with a skip in her step and a smile on her face.

Happy New School Year to all...
