HJ has been waiting patiently for school to begin. Last week, his 2 teachers came to visit us at home, and since then, he has been SO EXCITED.
School will be a bit different this year. Last year, he went two days a week, for about three hours. And, the preschool was in a separate building from the main school. This year, it is 5 days a week for 5 hours. It is also in a large elementary school, so he gets to walk from daycare with the big kids (he thinks it is awesome).
After his first day, he told me it was awesome. He said he liked playing with all of his new friends, but doesn’t remember any names. He disliked that at recess, he had to play in the “little kids park”. He prefers playing in the big kid park (he also thinks he is 8).
HJ also told me it is cool to carry your backpack over one shoulder. Carrying it on both shoulders is lame. He also set this trend for the other kids at daycare.
This far, he even likes hot lunch, but next week there is something called “peaches in strawberry gel”, so he might change his mind.
