I can't believe the summer is over! This little girl is so excited to be back at school with her friends. She really missed them! This morning she was so happy to go, the only thing she was a little nervous about was how to pay for lunch in the cafeteria. I assured her that because she has never been to all day school and eaten in the cafeteria before someone would show her where to go and what to do. She went to classroom 18 and found her friend Victoria (Vicki) and ran off giggling and playing. She is in PALS and has the same teacher Ms. Robinson this year again, so that is comforting. I can't wait to hear more about how her day went! Update to come..
