School Days

The girls have gone to 3 days of school now.  Kayla says it feels like she has been there her entire life, except she does not know where anything is.  She made a friend on the first day of school when she was in PE class.  There are actually 4 kids in Kayla's class that are brand new to the school.  She met another girl on Friday when she needed to go to the nurse's office.  She did not know how to get there.  The teacher had another girl show her the way.  It appears that Kayla has some poison ivy.  A great way to start off the new school year!

She got in the car today so excited about her art class.  I am excited that they have an art class!  At her old school the art teacher would just come into their classroom every few weeks.  It sounds like they will get to do some really neat things.  She is still not sure about her teacher.  I think she will be a good teacher.  It seems like she may just be a little strict.  She has a "procedure" for everything.  Only time will tell....

Caroline seems to be doing fine.  She told me she made a friend on the first day of school.  She does not know her name, but that is very typical of Caroline.  She was more than happy to go back to school on Friday.  She was not as thrilled to go today, but she went right in.  I have not been able to get much info out of her.  She seems to like her new school and her new teachers.  They did send home a note today.  The classes are larger than they would like them to be.  They are forming a new class and are asking for volunteers to move to that class.  I am not going to volunteer.  I think Caroline has had enough change for a while.  She may get moved anyway.

They both seem very happy which is a great relief to me.  I was so stressed about moving them.  I am so glad to have those first few days out of the way!
