First Day of School
My daughter turned 5 this summer, and so she starts school this year!!! Her first day of Kindergarten was on Tuesday when she went for a 30 minute visit. Later this week, we will go in for a welcoming conference with her teacher. She is super excited to be starting school as she will be learning Mandarin as part of her Kindergarten program. She will spend half the day learning in English, and the other half of the day learning in Chinese. How awesome is that!!!
To celebrate this momentous occasion, I sewed her a tote bag (as you can see in previous posts) and we also planted a Japanese Maple tree in our garden. Each September before school starts, we will take her picture beside the tree to mark her growth. Love the photo op!!
I also bought her a book to go into her library tote bag (The Night Before Kindergarten) and of course, I had to make her a card to go with the present! Here it is.
