WBB goes to Second Grade!

Another year of school and William Barron is now in Second Grade!  I remember the first day William went to Holland Hall.  He was in Preschool 4s.  I remember looking over at the circle drive where parents pick up 2nd and 3rd graders.  I remember telling myself, "WOW.  It seems like a long time before William will be over in that wing of the Primary School."  3 years later, William is in that far end of the Primary School and I am in that circle drive carpool line.  It's going so fast.  Only one more year and my Heart will march into Middle School. 

But for now, SECOND GRADE IS AWESOME!  William's teacher is Mrs. Cardiel.  We could not be more pleased with her.  She is FREAKISHLY smart and was the 5th grade reading and writing teacher before returning to 2nd grade teaching.  William loves math and he loves to read, so I know that is the reason he was placed in her class.  So far, he loves her.  I have met her once and she is nothing less than delightful.  Here's to a positive year!

William was all smiles on the first day of school.

So far, here is William's report on Second Grade :
  • There are 2 outside times
  • There is a full size basketball court on the playground
  • He's going to invent something for the Invention Convention
  • He gets to sit by anyone he wants during lunch instead of only his classroom friends
  • Homework is usually a math worksheet
  • Spelling tests every single Friday (He's nervous about these "first tests")
