It's the most wonderful time of the year! We loved our summer break, but Rachel has been asking to go to school since the first day of vacation. We were so ready! Here are the girls on the way out the door...
Hannah is in 2nd grade and Rachel is starting Kindergarten. They both attend different schools, so it makes mornings and afternoons a little complicated, but we'll figure it out.
Hannah loves her teacher--she was so excited to get Mr. Cox because he has a snake and isn't supposed to give a lot of homework.
Rachel goes to all-day Kindergarten. She spends her morning in a regular K-class with an interpreter (there are 3 deaf-ish kids in the class) and the afternoon in a classroom for K-5 hearing impaired kids. By the time she gets home she's wiped out and cranky, but I can tell she's having fun. Once we have a better routine, I think it will go more smoothly for all of us.
I'm so grateful for good teachers! I've been so impressed with my experience with public schools. When I walked Rachel to class on the first day (we were a little late), her teacher was telling the class about sign language and explaining that all the kids would get to learn some sign language. I about cried with gratitude for how they are going to far to help my daughter. And Hannah's school is very careful about choosing teachers based on a child's temperament. She's had 5 fabulous teachers already! I'm just so thankful I can know that they are in good hands.
