Jonathan's first day of Montessori was today. When I dropped him off at 8:45, the kids were all playing in the climber. He looked at me and said, "are you coming in with me?" I told him no, so he said okay and went in by himself with no tears and no hesitation. While I am very proud of this, it sure brings about mixed feelings!
You may also notice that we sent him to school with a bruised face. It happened last night at Elke's house, when Jonathan was lying on a skateboard and rammed into the grass face first. What a way to make a good first impression.
Jonathan loved school and came out beaming. I spent the morning volunteering at school and then shopping.
