Friday was Meet the Teacher Day at the girls' new school. Nana came with us to help tame the Kate-jitters and see where the girls will be spending large chunks of their lives for the next few years.
In addition to these two teachers, we met the art teacher, the music teacher, the librarian and the P.E. coach. They will go to PE every day, art class twice a week, music once a week and the library twice a week. Kate's favorite area was the library (shocker) which was enormous. She was in heaven when told she would be allowed to check out books every week. Lucy's favorite places were the art room (which has a kiln for firing up their pottery projects and a bunny as a classroom pet!) and the playground where they will have 2 recesses per day (one before school and one after lunch).
We followed up the school tour outside for popsicles with the Principal, "The best part of the tour Mama!" Thanks to the popsicles, the Principal is now their favorite.
