I don’t have a lot of time to give you the whole run-down of the first day of school, so I’ll give the 2 minute version.
Simon wasn’t on the class list that went out Saturday morning, so we had to get that sorted out before school started. We’ve been told his teacher is the nicest and everybody wants their kid in her class, so we feel good about that. We liked what we saw in the 20 seconds we’ve had to observe, and she was holding Simon’s hand when we left, so that was reassuring.
The boy himself seemed to have a good day. He doesn’t remember anybody’s name, and he thought they did more kindergarten things than first grade things, but he did get a birthday invitation from one of his classmates for this Saturday!
We biked to and from today, which worked out fine. I’m a little tired from going over the bridge 4 times, but it’s totally do-able, in my opinion. Tomorrow Micah will take Simon on the train and I’ll pick him up on the bike. We’re hoping to get Micah a bike he can take Simon in on before too long, but that’s still a work in progress.
Let’s hope the rest of the week goes just as well . . . and that they get into more “first grade” things.
