Evie's First Day of First Grade!

Meet the Teacher was on Wednesday and Friday was the first day! Evie was thrilled to get back in the classroom. Carl and I were excited to take her and Henry loves the classroom too. 

Evie really lucked out with three friends that she knows well - Sarah, Leah and Charlotte. Sarah was in her class last year and they are wonderful friends. Leah and Evie have been friends since before they could walk. Charlotte is our neighbor!  There are a few boys that she knows too! I was relieved to see smaller classes this year - only 18 in her room which is much better than the 22 in kindergarten.

Evie's teacher, Mrs. Holmes, is adorable! Evie really wanted this teacher because she "had a beautiful voice." I agree with Evie - Mrs. Holmes has a soft, sweet voice. Carl and I both feel great about the teacher and know that she will be perfect for Evie. Mrs. Holmes is sweet, organized, excellent communicator and has a wonderful reputation. I taught first grade before Evie so this will be interesting for me to see what first grade is like now. 

Friday was a half day to ease into the year. We met Leah at the park for a picnic and then had popsicles at Las Paletas. Leah has a brother Eddie that is Henry's friend. 

Here's to a fabulous year in the first grade!
