This morning we took Kynzi to her first day of 1st grade. I guess Jeanne-Ann spent the beforehand part of the morning dropping the salty liquid drops and I saved mine till we got to the school. I didn't think it would come, but I guess you just don't have control of when the tears will flow.
We walked into the classroom, where 23 students include only 9 boys, and saw the Condellos (Grace is in her class). We took a bunch of pictures and video and then went down to the cafeteria for juice and donuts and conversation. After 30 minutes of wait time we went outside for the raising of the flag, the pledge to the flag and the roots and shoots song. Their school is a charter school that focuses on the environment and technology. (yes!) Kynzi will learn how to give a powerpoint presentation as a 1st grader. (I still love technology).
