First Day of School

First day of grade 5!

Sparky’s gang of friends has been split pretty evenly down the middle, half in one class, half in the other. His English/homeroom teacher is lovely, and his teacher for the French half is the same teacher he had in grade 3. Looks like it’s already shaping up to be a great year.

Sparky was so laid back. Or rather, he was laid back on the surface, but he mentioned last night he was excited and a bit nervous. And I know he was, but he handled it all very well. It’s because he knows the place and the people, and he said that he was really looking forward to being back at school again when we were walking to the schoolyard. (This from the kid who had previously said he didn’t feel like he’d had enough of a summer and why did he have to go back, and who has been moping around bored the past two weeks.)

One more year of this laid-back return, and then we get to handle being nervous about going to his first day of high school! Ugh.
