First day of school

It was a cold and blustery first day of school yesterday. Fortunately, all three kids were super excited anyway. 

Jaybird with her teacher, Mr. Akre. She is going to learn so much this year! She has already been writing her numbers and practicing cursive letters. At the very end of the summer, she was doing addition sheets all by herself with me. She's very precocious. And -- she's not quite as shy about going into the classroom. That's a huge step forward.

Mouse learned that her teacher is going to have TWINS in February. Bear has a new teacher this year, too (even though he's in the same classroom). We've already determined that we like her a lot! She has ten years of Montessori experience, and just moved to town three weeks ago with her five kids.
