First Day of School

We all survived and were all home by 12:30! (and only a few tears were shed)
Luke, Abby and I (Stacey) all have homework already...no slacking here! Luke said he already met a friend who speaks English and Abby sits with a table full of boys. How did they know she would be able to handle herself in that situation?..and give them a run for their money?

In my class there are 9 students. I believe I am the only American. We played lots of games and listened to CD's. The teacher did not speak any English with us. We also worked with partners a lot...repeating sentences etc. My partner was a nun dressed to the nines in her "habit". I am TOTALLY telling the truth. I'm sure throughout the week we will have more stories to share. Thanks for praying for us on this BIG day!

"Schultuete"...First graders get these cones filled with candy on their first day of school! Abby really liked this!

The kids look adoreable! You can tell that Levi was nervous by how he is gripping his cone. And he doesn't start school until tomorow! I'm glad to hear that everyone survived the first day. I'm praying for you!
I LOVE YOU!

So glad the day went great! Tell Abby that Kenzie was surrounded by boys last year too. And she definitely gave them a run for their money. Do you think you can get a picture of the nun to put on your blog? teehee love, Kim

By the week's end your German partner may go back to the convent singing: "How do you solve a problem like a Schtacey? How do you make a blue bird touch the ground?..."

Glad your first days went well!
