Hey, Cali here! How was everyone's first days of school? Mine was pretty good but I did have a run-in with an O'Malley...not Nellie, though! Her cousin, actually, Natalie O'Malley. Natalie looks just like Nellie but she is amazingly nicer and way less snobby. I asked her if she was close with Nellie and she said "yes" so I didn't say anything more about Nellie...but I did tell her about school since she's new. I've been going here since first grade and I know it like the back of my hand! I make great friends, I have great teachers and I learn so much at FMSG. No offense, to the school Madame Montez Academy but I would rather go here any day. So anyway, it was a really fun day and we did a lot of cool stuff. My teacher, Senora Montoya, is (if you didn't already tell by the name) spanish! She used a lot of spanish words around us so I knew a few from my spanish classes that I took in 3rd grade. For instance, gato means cat, casa means home, perro means dog and yes is si. I also know some phrases but I have NO clue how to spell them.
Madi is in my class which I was thankful for since it's basically the last semester we're ever going to go to school together again :-( I'm still sad about the whole moving thing but I've gotten over it some. I'm trying to live in the moment!
The only thing that wasn't great about my first day was the homework- we got 100 multiplication facts to complete and we had to fill in an All-About-Me survey. Ugh!
Oh yeah, I almost forgot! My first day outfit! To see it you have to go to my Picasa newest album: www.picasaweb.google.com/hazelwoodca/CaliSFirstDayOfSchool#. This album also shows you a little bit more about my first day.
I guess I'm glad school has started up again. I can't wait to see what else we'll do! :-)
PS- I guess this post wasn't super long. I'm sorry!
