This week's blog promt is "Your first day of school". Our little ones are all headed back to school (either last week or this week, I'm assuming for most) and it's an exciting, if not stressful time.
Can you remember your first day at school? What was your teacher's name? Were you sad on your first day? Do you remember who your Year 1 best friend was? Do you have any photos of you on your first day?
I'll come back and do mine tomorrow. In the meantime, some photos of Alexander on his first day. I'm thrilled to say that despite my fears, this school is (so far) quite wonderful. He has an amazing teacher, the unit teachers and aides are divine (He has really attached to Russell, the male teacher's aide for Unit Kids in Year 4). The unit here is about the size of the unit at his old school (which had 500 children, this school has 1100). But the number of children attached to it is less than half. So it's going to be wonderful to see him finally NOT fall through the cracks.
Some flash flooding here in Brisbane, and the Australia day public holiday messed his first week around a bit (And Sammy's first week at his kindy/Pre School. Can you believe he will start Prep next year???? He coped amazingly well, far better than anyone expected! It was good news all around for my darling boys). So hopefully we'll get some routine going from this week.
So...tell us about your memories of your first day of school. How different was it to how yours are starting?
