Olivia started 2nd grade today, and the icing on the cake is that she got the teacher she wanted!
I love the way her Elementary school kicks off the first day. They play music outside and have lots of friends and peers from the community that open car doors and greet the kiddos as they walk into school. There were school mascots cheering the kids on, church youth pastors, NewSpring staff and volunteers from KidSpring, Wofford baseball players, and Olivia got to high-five her tennis coach on the way in! All the smiling faces and energy makes walking in the doors a lot of fun!!
Olivia has a couple of really good friends in her class, and she says she's excited to make lots of new friends, too!
So while Olivia was away at school today, Davis and I put together this little after school "party."
Before we knew it, the bus pulled up and the 1st day was under our belts!
Of course, I wanted to hear every little detail about her day, but this little kiddo is pretty tight-lipped when it comes to that sort of stuff. She did say they didn't do much learning today--they "took time to get organized and situated." Apparently her classroom was "infested" with cockroaches and caterpillars, and "somebody accidentally stepped on a **cal-ler-pid-ar** and green and yellow guts came out." The highlight of her day was recess. Enough said, I guess. She is, after all, a pro at this school thing!
In other news, Davis says he's not going to school--he's just going to "grow bigger and go to work with Daddy." Oh dear!
