Sadie started third grade today. All went well and she was very excited when she got off of the bus this afternoon. She reports that the best part of the day was recess when they got to swing from the "vines" hanging from the trees. Apparently some of the smaller branches hang down at just the right height to really swing on them. Sadie also seemed pleased that they have moved over to the "big kid" playground.
Another highlight of the day was being "Pirate of the Day." She gets to be it again tomorrow since they didn't have time to do much work today. The theme for the third grade class is pirates--the whole elementary has a fantasy theme. Way cool stuff in the third grade classroom. We are looking forward to a fun challenging year.
