First day of school

We had our first few days of school, then our first week--which was also a dacha week--and now we're home and into the second week. I wanted to write about our first day, before it's ancient history, and I'd also like to write about the whole first week. Anyway, first day: I already posted my one favorite photo from the day, but I hope you're ready for a bunch more!

On the morning of September 1, Raia was the first one up, but the others soon followed her. Raia ran straight to the calendar to see if the long-awaited day had arrived. And this is how that day went:

Checking the calendar: yes! today is the day!

Pancake breakfast, encouragement from the Bible, and fun
(I also "interviewed" them. I need to get their answers typed up here....)

Official opening of the school table

Pictures in the park

A stop at the music school

First lessons!

Celebratory tea

Happy little student

He wants to study applesauce!
