It just so happens that I am a week behind on this post, but I figure, better late than never! Alivia started school last Tuesday. She is now a 1st grader at Assumption (of the Blessed Virgin Mary—seriously, could the name be any longer?) School in Belmont.
I did not go to Catholic school growing up, and I never planned for my kids to go to Catholic school, but it just worked out that way. Alivia has gone to Assumption since preschool and I love, love, love this school!
Starting in 1st grade all the kids have to wear uniforms. The girls in 1st thru 5th grade get to wear the lovely plaid. I am not a fan of the plaid, but I am a fan of the uniforms! Honestly, the skorts and jumpers aren’t that bad, but the plaid pants are dastardly! Stay tuned this winter…if she ever wears the pants, I’ll be sure to post a picture.
The following day, on Wednesday, Lainey had her first day of preschool. She is in the 4 year old preschool, also at Assumption. The 4 year old class is Monday, Wednesday, and Friday mornings. I am only working on Tuesdays and Thursdays now, so I’ll be able to take her everyday, yeah! While she’s at preschool I plan on doing things like shopping, getting my nails done, and going to Starbucks, ha! Actually that doesn’t sound like such a bad idea…
The class Lainey had last week was only an hour long (and I stayed the whole time), so tomorrow will be her first “real” day. I’m anxious to see how dropping her off will go. My sister, who has a daughter the same age as Lainey, said dropping her daughter off at preschool today was like trying to pry a 40 pound bear off of you! My plan for tomorrow is to shove her in the door, and run for the nearest Starbucks!
Soooo…anyone up for coffee around 9:15 tomorrow morning?
