First Day of School


Arco Iris - Spanish Immersion School

Dad:      Tell me about school.
Arwen:  Uhhh? It's Spanish.
Dad:      Anything else?
Arwen:  We do very hard math.   And we do recesses once or twice a day.  And! NO! NO!  (Laughing).  
Dad:      Anything else? Do you have any friends?
Arwen:   My friends are Sajl and Cruz. 

Dad:      Tell me about school.
Noah:    Do you mean on Friday?
Dad:      Sure.
Noah:    It was great on Friday because I painted a picture of Egypt.
Dad:      Anything else?  Do you have any friends?
Noah:    One, Lilly.  She's one of my friends.
Dad:      If she's one of your friends who are the others?
Noah:    Even, and Kendall...that's all.  
Dad:      How about your school work, how is it?
Noah:    Good.  I do for my school work stuff like doing the...learning the vowels in Spanish the first one's 'A' the second one is 'E' then 'I,O,U'.  We also do for school work, we cut out little stuff and put it in our books and write the letter of what it starts with.  And we write a little story that my teacher writes down on the board.
Dad:      What's your favorite part about school?
Noah:    Math and Art.

Butternut Creek Elementary School

We have to draw letters, and circle the letters, and first we write our name.  Then we circle a letter if it's an "A" or if it's a lower case "a" we put in another box.   It's kinda hard for me to do crisscross apple sauce.  I have a blue folder and I go to gym at first and we go in a line so we don't loose anybody.   And we draw pictures of people and we're star students...but it's not my turn yet.  Soon I'm going to be one.  My friends are Ashley and Frankie.  I love School.

Larkin: My ballet school was about talking and being a doll and dancing like a doll.   Any my teacher said when people come out we go back in our box.  
Dad: How do you like it?
Larking: Meghan was biting the other girl and the other girl and me when the ballet again and pulled my hair.  
Dad: Anything else?
Larkin: And we dance, and have a nice day, and mom picked us up, and the teacher gives us water, and Maren's mom she picked us up and we comed home, and that... and we comed home.. and we uh... drink.

It is brilliant to have your kids in a Spanish integration school, wish I had done that. Love the pictures of the little Pixy Larkin, the Hobbits Noah and Joshua, and the Elf Arwen. Tell the kids next time Glenn and I see them we want to talk only in Spanish :D

That was such a fun post to read. Way to go, Aaron! You really squeezed a lot of information out of some of them. Maybe you could get a report from Evan, too!! :-)
