And here we go again. Another school start for us. Today it was Matilda's turn. She is now ready for preschool, the same one that Lukas started at. Her teacher, Mrs. Margarita, was there this morning to welcome her. She ate her breakfast, had a blast playing outside with the other children and did some serious art work. She even tried a tuna sandwich for lunch. And all of that in 3.5 hours. Now Tuesdays and Thursdays are school days for her.
It's official. Lukas is a big boy now. Today was his first day of Kindergarten. This morning he was curious and nervous but not worried or scared. He waved good bye to us as we had to leave the classroom right after we dropped him off and he came out happy and calm.
He has to wear a school uniform and since I prepared him for that already, he didn't even ask for his usual jeans/character t-shirt school outfit.
Here is Lukas with little sister who asked the whole morning when we can go and pick up big brother.
My favorite place to be is the beach. Any beach, anywhere. Last weekend we went to the Santa Cruz beach, right behind the Boardwalk. It's a OK beach but we still had a good time. The kids even dipped into the ice cold water.
Today Lukas had his first swim lesson ever. He loves the water and to hang out in the pool for hours but he still needs the floaters for assurance. So today he got into the water with the instructor and I think in few days he will be ready to move around on his own without floaters.
