On Mondays, I take Anna to Kindergarten at a school for homeschooled kids. (I know, that's confusing.) So far she's gone twice, once with me for orientation (the above picture was us right before we left) and then this past Monday was her first day all day by herself. She loved it! It was so strange not having her here though. My other kids missed her all day and quite frankly, so did I! (You should have seen Biniam's face positively light up when I told them it was time to go pick up their sister!)
My kids have never attended preschool or any sort of organized school-type program before, so this is big for us. One day a week seems good--I like that Anna gets to go and have stuff she does independently, while at the same time is still primarily a part of the day-to-day goings on at home. Yesterday for example she and I baked apple crisp and brownies for our church's community group that we just started hosting/leading. She loved it.
Getting a proper send-off from Daddy.
Proud siblings dropping her off!
Okay I think you are sufficiently updated on all things school-related. :) Which means I'm going to have to come up with something else to blog about!
