Jessica Goes To Big School Jessica 14 JAN 2016

Yesterday was Jessica’s first day of going to the big school. True, it is only Grade R so it’s not like it’s uniform time just yet, but class is now at Gordon’s Bay Primary School (conveniently down the road from us), meaning that it counts! ;)

With me continuing to be out of action thanks to my knee, I missed out on taking Jessica to her first day at primary school, but nevertheless, she was super excited enough to pose for photos to show off her new bag, water bottle and lunch box while we waited for Mommy to finish getting ready.

English Grade R teacher Diane Matthews appears to be a bit of a legend when it comes to teaching the kids, and Jessica was over the moon with her first day in the Fishy Class, followed by the unrestricted play time that came with the afternoon’s aftercare spell.

Although all her friends from Vergeet-My-Nie are unfortunately in the Afrikaans classes, she does get to play with them at aftercare, and besides, I’m pretty sure that with her bubbly little personality, making new school friends is going to be a snap!

Seriously, where is the time flying? :)
