All the kids have started at new schools. Abbie and Daniel at Moorook Primary School and Caleb at Barmera Kindergarten. They are all enjoying themselves and look forward to going to school which is fantastic.
Caleb’s first day was a bit of an adjustment for him and he was very clingy and took a while to feel relaxed.
Eventually one of the staff (they have fantastic staff) took him outside to see their “mud kitchen” (yep, that’s right) and he was able to unlock the water pump and start pumping it… and then he was right!
Barmera Kindy have a bush kindy program that starts this week, which he is looking forward to very much. They get to go out to the bush and climb trees and search for bugs! Completely up his alley.
Abbie and Daniel are enjoying themselves – Abbies is in senior school (Grade 3-7) and Daniel in Junior school (Reception to Grade 2).
Daniel is the only Grade 1 student but has fast made friends with some other boys, and has already had several playdates.
Abbie is enjoying a smaller school. In fact today, I heard her say to a teacher that she loves the smaller school environment.
Abbie and Daniel have also started music lessons with a local private company called “Music Alive”. Daniel is learning the drums and Abbie has started voice lessons. We’ll see how they go.
