The moment Bronwen has been waiting for has finally arrived! The reason she potty trained so quickly, the reason, we hope, that she'll stop sucking her thumb...school has begun!!!!
I was worried she might be a little nervous with the language barrier but she hardly looked back as she said "bye mom". I was really excited for her but a small part of me was sad that she'll be gone all day, every day now. Her teacher is so kind and has loads of personality so I know that Bronwen will acclimate just fine. Her teacher speaks about as much English as I speak Dutch so this ought to be fun! We hope that we will learn from each other and in no time Bronwen will be translating for us.
Alex and I had a great day. We shopped in town for new shoes and a jacket for he and Bronwen then went to the park. It is really nice having some one-on-one time with my boy. I have some pretty big shoes to fill with his best playmate gone all day:)

All the parents and students gathered in the courtyard before class started and the principal gave a welcoming speech, wish I understood it all but everyone seemed excited by his words.
