Sophia and Sebastian had their first day of school last Thursday.   They were both ready for the school year to begin.  We had been at the open house the night before, met with their teachers and dropped off their school supplies.  We thought Sophia might be nervous starting Kindergarten and riding the bus for the first time, but she gave us hugs and hopped on the bus with the rest of the kids.  Mike and I drove down to the school and got there before the bus pulled up.  We wanted to be sure that she arrived safely and also wanted to walk with her to the classroom.  We followed behind her as she led the way.  She found her locker, gave us hugs (again) and she ventured off into the room to meet her classmates and explore.

When I picked the kids up later that afternoon they both told me that their days went well.  Sebastian was a bit concerned about how much homework he would have this year, but has a great teacher and a lot of friends in his classroom.  Sophia also has a wonderful teacher and one little boy from her soccer team is in the same class.  She met some “new friends” and enjoyed playing on the playground on her first day.  The only glitch during the day was when another little girl took Sophia’s lunch box by mistake (what girl wouldn’t want a cute pink lunch box?), leaving Sophia without a lunch.  The helpers in the cafeteria straightened it out right away and she was able to eat before it was time to head back to class.  Overall, a good start to the school year.
