The kids all had their first day of summer school today - which is also their first day of school in the US. We were pretty nervous about how they would do, and I think they all were too. The first day was a little crazy, but eventually they all got placed in a classroom with at least one other spanish speaking student. When we picked them up from school (Ed took the day off and we enjoyed some time alone together!!) they were all pretty happy and excited. Pamela really enjoyed the day, Camila and Sebas thought that there would be more Spanish spoken, but Samantha said her class was perfect for her :) Another fun benefit is that in the summer the schools offer free breakfast and lunch!! What?? Awesome! That seriously is so helpful and the kids like it too - so yeah! Sebas did say he doesn't really want to go back, but I expected a bigger fight than that, so we're doing good.
Pamela tells us she is going to know English by the end of the day tomorrow... I'm not going to hold her to it, but I like her ambition!
Three weeks of summer school and then more Vaca - fun!
