Well we were a half hour late for the first day of school. Good thing we live in Costa Rica and they were just getting started! I did miss hearing them call her name so had to find her name on a list. Thank goodness her teacher speaks some spanish, that helped a lot.

The best part was she got the exact schedule I wanted her to get. Mon. Wed. and Fri. from seven until ten thirty. Tues. and Thurs. twelve thirty until four. That works out very well for us as if we want to head to the beach we leave on Friday after school.

The picture of her school class is actually two classes that meet in the same classroom. Hence the two schedules. I think I can handle her being gone three and a half hours a day. So far she hates school. They did not even write and cut or glue! Imagine that the first day and nothing fun. Plus she opened her bowl and spilled strawberry juice all over her dress. When she came out she looked a tad bit worse for the wear.

Good thing it was only one hour today! I only cried once when she came out of the classroom. She just looked so small and lost. I guess we will both survive.

She looks so cute! What a big day. I would like it if we had uniforms here. I think it could make life easier.
