Today the kids went back to school. They've had a four week winter break! This was Josh's first day at The King's School West Rand. Ruth Anne has been at King's since grade 2 (now she's in grade 9). We were going to put Josh in King's next year for grade 1, but his class is completely full and there are 40 kids on the waiting list for grade 1. So, when a space opened for the year (grade 0 or kindergarten), we moved him from Little Discoverer's.
Josh was very excited about going to "big" school with his sister. At 6:30 this morning, while he was sitting at the table eating breakfast, he looked out the kitchen window and asked, "Why is it dark outside? When is it morning time?" We got to school, he met his teacher, then he headed to the playground. Surprise!
He seemed to have a good day. He saw his friend, Keon, that he knew from Little Discoverer's. He learned the letter "A." And his class is making sock puppets tomorrow.
Ruth Anne got her exams scores from last term and did well. I don't really need to say it, but...she was not as excited to be at school as Josh was!
