First Day of School
And here is her brother already hamming it up for the camera.
And here is me, in a dress I made (a sewing post is brewing big time)
For me, it was a swirl of emotions. Can you imagine how powerful it is for a child to stand there with her childhood friends, the ones she has spent 3 years with in kindergarten, and before that a year in nursery, and before that a year or two in parent-child? These children, these dear, dear friends, their parents also friends of mine, will accompany her through her lower grades as well. That is indeed a treasure.
As for me, I spent my morning in Serena's classroom as an assistant, although I'm not really sure what I'm doing yet. I then taught second and first grade music. We sang and played a couple of singing games and I shared a story that came to me at 10 p.m. the night before.
All in all, a good day and I am very very happy to be back in the classroom!
