Ingrid got into a local Montessori school and she started today. She was pretty excited to go, although I'm not sure she understood that it wasn't the same place she went to this summer. She has to wear a uniform, red top/dark pants, and she has this huge backpack that is bigger than she is. I feel pretty torn if I'm excited for her or wondering how she got so big?
We found the room, and all the kids were already seated in a circle around the teacher. Ingrid just sat herself right down and said hi, I'm Ingrid! She didn't even look back to see me leaving. And when I picked her up she was bouncing around talking about how fun it had been. I think she likes school.
