Nate started 1st grade a month ago, but I am finally getting his first day pics up. He was excited to see his friends, but he was not thrilled to be missing out on what happened at home when he was gone. They started on a Wednesday, and by Friday he was upset that he had to stay home with us on Saturday and Sunday.
School has gotten off to a good start for him. He went from having 2 kindergarten classes with 7 kids each to 1 first grade class with 21 (20 beginning Monday as one girl moved to Michigan this weekend). I think he is enjoying a bigger class and loves having 2 teachers (regular classroom teacher and a student teacher until Christmas).
When we asked him what the best part of first grade is – SCIENCE! He was so excited to have “real” science this year. Not at all surprising that this would be his favorite!
