Bridget had one teacher in mind that she did not want, and she did not get her. I have heard that the teacher she did get is a fun but down to business teacher. I really appreciate that. This is the first time that Bridget will get real grades. Before 4th grade they get a 1,2, or 3 on report cards. So this could be interesting. Bridget has been so very spacey the last few months, but if she thinks a little she will do fine.
Becca did not get the nightmare teacher and that is all that matters. I have come to the conclusion that the whole second grade is weak in teaching anything, so I just want her to be happy during the day. I think the teacher she got will allow a happy year.
Last year they both had teachers I really liked. Becca's teacher was exceptional though. She will be the teacher that is never forgotten. Unfortunately, due to a crappy numbers game, she had to transfer to another school. Sad for our school, but I'm glad she has a job. She had a lot to do with which class Becca was placed in, so I sent her a note today and thanked her. She wrote back to me with some of the nicest words ever. I will just miss having her in the school.
Here a the couple pictures I got this morning sending them off on the bus.
|Bridget was standing on a little higher ground to giver her the appearance of being much taller. Becca is going to catch her in height if Bridget doesn't grow soon.|
|Becca picked a messenger bag (like Bridget always does). She looks like she is moving out it is so large. There was no talking her out of this giant bag.|
