2nd grade

This is what 2nd grade looks like in our house. I was a tiny bit worried about her because she was not in the same class as her favorite peeps, but she was open to the idea of making new friends. One new boy from India who is quiet and shy is in her class, and he joined our community right at the end of 1st grade last year. When I told her he was in her class, she said, "Oh, nice. I wanted to get to know him."

There were some nerves (oh, this kid worries so much sometimes!) about what to do when she is itchy and needs to get Benadryl from the office. She hates, hates, hates missing anything for fear of not knowing the directions, but we are trying to encourage her to speak up and just ask for the directions again. 

She rated the first day a 16 on a scale from 1-10. And then, in the backyard after school, a wild game of ball tag with friends from the other class made us all realize that in our close community, it doesn't really matter what class you are in.
