Joshua Starts P1

Yesterday was Joshua's first day in P1 (Kindergarten). How can my little boy be so big? I am left with this feeling that I am sending him off and will never fully have him all to myself again. But this is a time to celebrate and rejoice with him, not mourn my loss...

Doesn't he look so cute in his school uniform? Here all the public schools have uniforms. His school colors are grey and green, so they all wear grey trousers (skirts / dresses / etc), white shirts (primarily polo shirts) and green sweatshirts or sweaters. And all the kids has their green book bags for official communication between teachers and parents (homework, etc). He love that book bag.

Proud Daddy gets to walk Joshua to school in the mornings for a little bonding time before they both head to their separate school work.

And Mommy gets to greet his smiling face after school each day.

I have been so pleased with the joy Joshua and Abigail have expressed in each other's new classes. Joshua love to give Abigail tips about being in Nursery and they both are excited to hear about all that they have each done and learned at school that day.

And here we go... entering the school for his first day of class. They are very gradual with the schedule changes for P1. They start in small groups of 5 or 6 for just the afternoon, with only that small group getting to know their teacher and each other. Then those kids join the rest of their class (who already started in an afternoon earlier in the week) the next morning. The entire class has 1 to 2 weeks (depending on their start day) of half days until September 5, when the schedule changes to full days, from 8:55am to 3:15pm.

Joshua is thrilled about his new class and teacher, Mrs. Ritchie, and we are excited to rejoice with him as he continues to grow up...
