1st Day, 1st Grade

Big day for Molly (yesterday) as she entered a new school, went from 3 1/2 hours to 6 1/4 hours of school and was exposed to Spanish for the majority of those 6 1/4 hours. She appeared pretty excited looking at the pictures below, but definitely had her worries. Can't blame her, however, for worrying about having to be totally enmeshed in a foreign language, not knowing a single peer, and not knowing who her new teacher is going to be. I'd probably be a lot more scared than she was. But she's tough! And she made it through! She told dad afterwards that her first day was "Great!" but to me she said she didn't want to go back tomorrow and missed kindergarten. The day really was long for her (poor thing!), but like a good mom I reassured her she would get used to it plus she would start to make friends which would give her something else to look forward to each day. The reassurances seemed to work because she went back again today.
