From all accounts the first day of school was a huge success. The girls looked so cute, and so grown in their uniforms and backpacks.
Maddie was thrilled to have her own calendar of events to keep in a folder, and Ella was looking forward to the treats the students get for earning stars. Maddie is looking forward to going to the gym today (so unlike her grandmother!!!).
We celebrated at Toyoma last night--the kids ate fried rice and teriyaki chicken as if they were starving. And I know that they will not fight sleep either--some of the real benefits of a scheduled day at school.
Thank you God bright, curious, ready-to-learn grandchildren.
