Here are the objects Ben chose for his “All About Me” project at school (basically a show and tell where students bring in special objects from home and use them to tell the class a little bit about themselves)…Pokemon binder, family photo, Indian headband made with his real turkey feather from Long Island, a picture of his Uncle Ben, a Minecraft cube, and his Chima alarm clock.
Ben did his presentation yesterday and said it went great. (And all the special objects made it safely back home.)
Starting third grade, Monday was also Ben’s first day at The Williams School, a place I know he’ll grow to love as much as I do…Ben and Mr. Spencer, our Head of School, sitting by our school motto on the steps. He was in his office that morning and came out to ask Ben if he could take a first day of school picture with him. He really is one of the best school leaders I’ve ever worked with. He trusts and values his teachers while still providing guidance and helping us to always stay focused on doing what’s best for the kids.Overall, I think Ben had a great first day. Being one of only two new kids in his class was an adjustment, but still, the other kids have been really nice. I’m so excited to see the rest of Ben’s year unfold.
Ben’s thrill of the evening – seeing “wildlife” on our back deck… He was so excited. He even insisted I get my camera. Clearly, he’s not growing up in the country.
