1st Day of School - Success!

Husband and I took kids to Private School today.

Not surprising, the new Preschool building is not quite completed. Youngest Son was allowed to stay to play for day but he officially starts Wednesday. No school for him tomorrow.

Then - so hard - I had to fly to USA for work. It was tough to leave and not be there to when kids completed their 1st day.


Husband sent me the following message via my iPhone:

"Believe it or not when asked without any prodding Oldest Son said he had a great day.

Youngest Son and Other Youngest Son (from Other American Family) both had fun days as well.

Oldest Son said it was helpful he practiced Spanish.

Husband :) :) :) :)!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!"

So we have crossed a huge Moving Kids to Mexico hurdle. I am sure there will be some hard days ahead but both had a Great 1st Day - so happy!

It also provided a warm parenting moment that Oldest Son recognized all the Spanish we have made him practice over the past few months was a good thing! Parents do know best - usually anyway.

Wonderful, glad it all went well! I think you'll be amazed at how their Spanish explodes in a short time, kudos to you and to them for embracing the adventure.
