My little angel finished her first year of school today. She’s been going four mornings a week and it hardly seems two minutes since I was dropping her off for her first day, trying to pretend that I was really happy and knowing that I’d start bawling as soon as I got out of the classroom. She seems to have grown up so much in this year, from a shy little thing to a confident speaker. Unfortunately she hasn’t grown much in stature. Her best friend stands head and shoulders over her…cute!
The year finished with a whole-school assembly and the kindergarten had to sing three songs. The boys dressed as shepherds, the girls as angels. We never have any trouble getting M to dress up. She loves it. But I wasn’t allowed to tie back her hair. “Angels don’t have bunches, Mummy!” Most of the girls in her class are blonde and blue-eyed, but I still think she was the sweetest looking angel. I'm not biased or anything.
Of course, their item was well received. They only have to stand there in dress-ups at that age to have everyone going ‘Ahhh’.
Now we have six weeks holiday before she starts full-time school. She was hoping it was only a week! I can only hope that attitude to school lasts for a long time to come.
