The first day of school has always been one of my favourite days, and it continues with my own kids. This year E is heading into Grade 6 and Q is in Grade 1. These feel like milestone years, Q will get his own desk rather than doing the play based learning and E is technically in the middle school years even though he won't change schools until Grade 9. We are fortunate that we have confident kids so there is no anxiety walking into their new classes on the first day.
Ready for the day.
