and so it begins
Last night was our first Kindergarten (preparation) event. Bridget and I went to the school, sat in the “Cafetorium” and met the teachers. About fifteen minutes in, all the kids went back to the classrooms with one teacher and the assistant. While some of the children were hesitant, Bridget was not. She was the furthest from the exit and the first one there. I think it’s safe to say that she is excited. It’s a little disheartening to know that Kindergarten isn’t quite as much fun as it was when I was five – but I know that she’s more than ready. I am certain that as we go along, there will be certain things about the system (and certain assumptions) which will annoy me, but I am hopeful that they’ll be kept to a minimum.
