When we got to school, Hallie was a little shy but as soon as she saw her kinder friends from last year, she was happy. This year Hallie is in a Prep/1 with 21 kids, a big jump from 10 last year but she has Sarra's old Gr1 teacher, Mrs Walker and she is fantastic so we are pretty pleased. We found Hallie's bag hook and it was on the top and she could not even reach up to put her bag over the hook. It was so funny - maybe Mrs Walker will move her name to the bottom row.
See how they wanted the same hair styles...Sarra was very excited to be in Gr 3, (composite 3/4) a bit like Jalen was last year as finally, they are starting to be one of the big kids and she said that this year they were doing heaps of Art and Science with Mrs K (Kleinig) who is also a fabulous teacher.
I met Hallie's student teacher too today and I was asking her a few questions and she said, 'oh are you a teacher too?' I laughed and said 'no, but my Mum, 2 sisters and bro-in-law are'. I guess I have picked up a bit listening to them talk at family dinners. :)
Oliver starts early learning again some time this term and is very excited to know that this is his last year before kinder. He is 4 on March 4th so is one of the older ones so I know next year he will be more than ready for kinder. Look at me, already getting excited about next year when it's only the first day of this year. ;)
