2 weeks before school started, Nic got accepted to the same Charter School that Luke would be attending.
I applied for Nic and Paula but unfortunately there were only openings in the 3rd grade level. We'll apply again for Paula next year (middle school already!!!).
I especially wanted the kids to attend this charter school because of the language focus. I'm a strong believer in being bilingual and have been disappointed that the kids are not fluent in Romanian as they should be...and frankly, Adrian has given up too. I hope they will try again in the future (a must!). So through this curriculum, they will be able to learn another language and get the European cultural experience that we cannot give them on our own. I want my kids to be "globally" aware so am very excited that we finally got into this school. Too bad the primary language is not French or Italian (wouldn't that be awesome?!?), but with time, they will be able to speak German to their Grandma Maria, which is pretty darn cool! I'm going to try to learn German too...it'll be a family goal.
First day of school - their first time at different schools
When I told Nic that I would take him out of his current school to attend this charter school, there were tears...."What about my friends?" I'm on guilt-mode, promised lots and lots of future play dates with his old friends.
Meeting new teacher:
Seeing a familiar face always helps:
Leaving him as the bell was about to ring....I think we were both holding back tears...although he denied it.
I wasn't worried about Paula...she's the big girl on campus now...a 5th grader!!!
