The days are ticking away fast. Our two-month-never-ending-summer-holiday is sadly almost at an end.
Today – back-to-school haircut for M, scouting for school books, and a concert in the evening with Mr. R in the orchestra. I also took M to school for a sneak peek. He’s been thinking about going to his new class and that’s been scaring him (his words). So today we went in and I pointed out the classrooms and showed them in relation to where his class was last year. So now he has a sense of orientation and familiarity. The classrooms were locked but we were able to peek in through the windows. M saw the benches and desks and blackboards and hopefully felt reassured.
School is scary for most kids. I don’t remember being worried, just eager to get on with it for the most part.
