Um...let's try that again.
Amelia and her best friends:
Her best buddy Rylee...who unfortunately is in a grade beneath her but only four months younger than her.
Her best buddies from her classroom: Stephanie, Rachel and Amelia....we are missing one. She wasn't there yet. So I dug up an old picture from our back-to-school carnival.
There she is! Sidney, Amelia and Rachel.
I LOVE her class. She has been in the same class with the same kids that she has known since she was born. They are all fantastically WONDERFUL kids with good parents. We have an amazing principal that lets us choose which teacher our kids will have and we get together and conspire.
I am already loving her teacher. When I walked out of the class this morning...and I was the LAST parent to leave...I heard her tell them how amazing they were and how impressed she was with their behavior and manners. She really does have a good class with kids who are excited to be there and parents who want to be involved. I stayed outside the door out of eyeshot because I was adjusting Sophie. She was so tender with those kids.
We have had such GOOD LUCK with teachers thus far. Each year I think the teachers have a lot to live up to from the previous year, but I have yet to be disappointed. I have developed a friendship with most of these teachers and I think I am as sad to see the year end as Amelia is. When we walked onto the school yard this morning, Amelia's teacher from last year came up to her and grabbed her into a hug and then she hugged me. THAT is how amazing these teachers are.
I think a few tears fell on my way out. Maybe I should go back to elementary school.
