This series would be on ds1 school. Put together some pics from his 1st day till now.


First day of school
Aug 28th Tues

He woke very early, as mentioned in a previous post, so he napped in the car. This was when we just arrived, woke him up, and he was like "huh? where are we?".




Went in the school and as he was already orientated on the previous times we went for the school's BBQ (11 Aug) and Parent-meet-teacher (23rd Aug), he placed his jacket on the hook, lunch box in his cubby hole and school bag in a huge container, also used to hold "Show and tell" items. The Chinese drum was his 1st "show and tell" item. :-)

That's his teacher, very experienced and good with kids. She was originally from Utah, but stayed in Scotland for very long, and just returned to Utah actually.

She is really the right for ds1 because he feels she understands him very well. When he hums Stravinsky's Firebird suite in school, she'll sing along with him. When he switches to Bach or Bizet's Hungarian Dance, or Edvard Grieg's Peer Gynt, or In the Hall of the Mountain King, she actually follows him, every note! He was just delighted, and so am I. When he draws the Russian dolls and the story of the Firebird ballet, she'll write in the words for him and listen to the whole story. During Show and Tell, she'll let him tell the whole class all about his stuff, always listening attentively. That is something I didn't give him enough at home! So he loves school. (I'm normally rushing ard doing chores or I just heard his stories too many times, I ask him to keep quiet.)The first part of the day (8.30am to 8.45am) is free play then circle time. So ds1 played with a puzzle.

Left him in school, brought ds2 to nearby Liberty Park. Here are some pics of him playing, climbing, having a field day.






Right now, I still bring them to Liberty Park very often, and the trees are all changing to various hues of orange, yellow and red. I'll remember to take pictures the next time and show you the difference. Esp the trees around the pond, they look so beautiful, and very different from the scene in summer (above).




Above left is part of the Rotary Playground (the biggest playground within Liberty Park). There are 3 other playgrounds, if I didn't recall wrongly. This part is the musical part, with chimes and percussion.
Above right: There was one time I took ds2 to Barnes and Noble to browse books. They have regular story-telling sessions for kids and they give out snacks and small gifts too. Can't remember when this was, so just conveniently post it here.

On to next post.
