New School, You Rule!

Well, we made it. Camille started the new school today. When we had packed our things and got ready to leave in the morning I said to Camille, "Are you ready to go to school?" She looked at me with a shocked expression and said "No Mommy! I want to go to the NEW school!" I stand corrected. Initially, Camille seemed happy, even proud to be at the new school. But when it was time to say goodbye to Mommy the tears began to flow. According to her new teacher, Ms. Maria, the tears did not last long. Ms. Maria seemed quite surprised at how well Camille did on her first day. She said "Camille ate all her lunch, took a great nap, seemed to get along with all the other kids and really followed direction well!" It then occured to me that Ms. Maria might not be informed that, although this was Camille's first day at the Academy, it wasn't her first time ever in a school-type setting. She is, for all intents and purposes, a pre-school tranfer student. Either way, thanks Camille, for being such a super kid on your first day.
