First Day of School in Review
When they got to school, Steve said Jonas was so eager that he jumped out of the truck and headed towards the school on his own. Things only got better when they made it to the doors of the school. He ended up with the same wonderful teacher as last year, gets to sit beside one of his best friends, the girl he has a crush on is in his class too, AND "we finally get to start learning French - for real!"
The only negative Jonas reported was that it rained all day so they didn't get to go out for recess. Of course, that had it's benefits too. He got to play Lego at recess and mini sticks hockey at lunch time, which are two of his favorites. He couldn't get a status update on the crush and her boyfriend from last year though. The rain kept everyone under the watchful eye of the teachers so no there was no close for any school yard romance. (Is it wrong that my thought about that is "Phew!"?)
All and all, it sounds like it was a great day, confirmed by the first smiley face from is teacher in his agenda. The big smile on his face when I picked him up after school, and the excitment in his voice as he told us about his day, gave us a big sigh of relief. He went to bed looking forward to starting French class today, something I wouldn't have expected in a million years. I guess some change is good.
