Nathan's first day of school went very well! It was wonderful not to have to leave him behind as we went to work early in the morning. He was so excited the night before that he couldn't fall asleep; he kept creating excuses to get up, like having to go to the bathroom, or wanting to watch a movie or sleep in our bed. The best one came at about 11:30 PM, when I heard him calling from his room, "Mommy, I need a nail cutter!" He never wants me to cut his nails!
The first day is always a half day, so it was not too overwhelming for the little ones. The teachers reported that he had a great time and was very independent. There was no crying or fighting, and he went potty at the designated time so there were no accidents.
Here are just a few memorable photos of Nathan with some of his schoolmates and his teachers, Ms. Hasmik and Ms. Marina (his former nanny)!
