Welcome to the Kindergarten class of 2009 taught by Mrs Collins… henceforth known as “K-C”.

happy day

What a day, what fun, what a blast!

uniforms, school lunch, school bag, wheelchair, seating system, bean bag, change bag, bibs, bandanas, teeny tiny hat…  OK, so maybe a little more “baggage” than the other kids…  

Mac’s amazing friend from ‘Pedagogy at Five’ is in his class along with some good friends from Pre-school.   His School Angels (Teacher’s Aides) are delightful and enthusiastic – there are lots of things to work out  – but I am sure we will get there.

We prepared a Cheat-Sheets-4-School for his Teacher and Aides.

Mac added a 20 min sleep to his day’s curriculum – no one seemed to mind.

All in all it was a good day – looking forward to tomorrow.

    Hi Gina
    Wonderful Pics. So glad things are going so well for Mac – may have something to do with that cheeky smile and two wonderful parents who are such great advocates for him.
    Oonagh started preps – she’s breezing it so far. Can’t imagine what I’ll be like when Fearghus starts in two years time.
    I hope the good vibe continues

    awwwww, shucks.
    Can you tell we are just over the moon with pride at the moment. There have been times over the last 5.5 years I would never have dared to think about this week – that it would ever be possible.
    thanks so much for sharing the journey
