Alayna's First Day of School
Ok, so Alayna's first day of school was today. She did really well! There were some tears when she first realized I was leaving, but big brother Calvin came to the rescue and found her a cool toy to play with and she started playing and we were able to slip out the door! I stuck around to fill out some paperwork and by the time I was ready to leave I had the administrator peek in on her before I left and she was doing fine. When I came back to get her they said she had a "wobbly" start, but had "settled in quite nicely". Don't you just love how the British can phrase things! For those of you who don't know, she is attending "Happy Chappies" Nursery school 2 days a week. It is run by the British and is a Montessori school. My only concern is that more than half of her class has Arabic as their first language. The teachers are British and teach entirely in English, but I am concerned a little about how she will play with the others and if they will play with her. On the bright side maybe she will pick up a second language! I guess time will tell if this will work or not. Calvin will be starting school on Sunday. (Kuwaiti weekends are Friday and Saturday).
Welcome to Bak4More! Here is a little introduction to the family; my name is Dawn and I am the Mommy around here. I am married to Ryan who is the Daddy of the house as well as a Major in the US Air Force. Then there is our first born Calvin, who is my brainy and sweet hearted child. And the baby of the family is Alayna, who is as tough as nails and as girly as they come. We move around a lot, but are currently living in South Korea. Hope you enjoy our little blog and check back often. Don't forget to comment so I know you were here!
