First day of school

Good morning!

Vacation is over and all kids in town went to school yesterday for their first day class. To some schools here, if you were able to read some news about school here, due to over population and lack of rooms, thousands of students have their class in the school's stairs or under the shade of a tree, or any place where somehow they can do classes. Really, this is one sad story we had here.

Concerning [J], their class also started yesterday. Her mother made a one day leave just to bring her to the school, so that just in case some concerns arises it can be address immeciately. But so far nothing happens. Everything went well yesterday.

She's excited with her new school. She met two newfriends named Alexis and Rose and in her first day she got three stars from her teacher because of good writing skills. We're happy of course about it. Just one instance that happened yesterday that is not good. One of her classmate is drinking her juice and that juice all transfered to [J]'s dress. But not really became a concern since [j] has an extra dress.

These are the first happenings in [J]'s first day in school.

It's coming!

It is 7:44 here now. Outside you can already feel the humidity even though it is too early. That means its a struggle again of mine because for sure we will have a hot day. How I wish I live in a mall so that it is really cool inside.

It is already June 5th here. And five days from now will be the start of class. Me and [my wife] are preparing everything that J needed for her school. We already went to ther mall last Saturday to buy her a new bag (big one with wheels as requirements of school), school supplies, new shoes (because the previous is already small for her...I'm amazed!) and other things more.

We have also started to review her so that she will be able to remember some of the lessons she had previously. That means everything are set for June 10, 2008. Now Janelle is with us. We are enjoying our time with her so that by the time the school starts at least she was able to enjoy her summer vacation.
