A new beginning is very exciting!
Here are the pictures of Teddy's first day at school.
All grown up & ready at last.
We all walked to school, but Teddy got a piggy back from Dad up the big hill.
Poppi (big Al ) rang as he got to the pedestrian crossing and Ted explained what he was doing every step of the way (eg. I am wearing my new shoes with grey socks and I am crossing at the crossing across the road from school and I am looking left and now right for any cars that are coming.....)
He was met by his year one buddy, Kye, who was looking after him during school orientation last year. And got some last words of advice from Dad.
I love this! Teddy is so excited, Sienna is less than impressed with all the fuss(not made over her).
Teddy telling Steven..... something.
The new Principal Neil Solomon makes a welcome speech to the kindy parents with a box of Tissues handy, but there weren't too many tears among us.
His teacher is Ms. Delaney who also runs the school choir (happy about that, though he can't join until year one) and he has 12 girls in his class and 6 boys (the same numbers and ratios in both Kinder classes). Both Kindy teachers have been absolutely wonderful with communicating and keeping in touch with us about what Teddy is up to, we hope to work well together to make life between school and home an easy transition. Specially made Kindy hats.
His teacher said he did very well on his first day.
When it came time to draw 2 experiences from his first day, he did amazing pictures and the picture of his teacher even looks like her, but then he got carried away and turned himself and the other kids he had drawn into bugs, it was funny.
