Big 2 Weeks

We’ll we’ve had a big few weeks in our housefold.  So far, so good! 

Nathanael is transitioning into his montessori.  The drop offs are still rough but I think it’s going well.  I’m still having a hard time getting my head around the Montessori “way” but I keep telling myself that we wanted a philosophy/approach.  The teachers say he is doing really well.  This makes me happy to think we are raising a secure little boy.  I continue to like his teachers very much.  While I miss the kids and the familiarity of the old school, I think this is a good decision for us.

Tita had her first day of school on Monday.  I was nervous for her and she was as well.  But, I think she’s doing really well and I think she has terrific teachers (except one).  She seems engaged and comfortable.  Tita’s schedule:  economics, drawing/painting, English, Chinese, Geometry, and Chemistry.  I think it will keep her on her toes but I think she’s up to it.  I’m enjoying talking to her about her classes and the schools made some good/interesting changes since I went there.  Most teachers seem to have a good teaching style and Tita tells me they even have good music during the time between classes.  Cool!

I love to see Tita and Nathanael play.  It’s very sweet and they seem to be developing a very good relationship.  What a joy.  Pictures to come.
