New school

This evening Mommy and Daddy and I went to my new school to meet my teacher for next year and to see my new classroom. I was VERY excited about it, but also a little bit nervous. I wanted to take Leo with me, but Daddy said that some of the other children might think that was a funny thing to do, so I left him in the car instead.

My classroom is the same one that Mommy had when she was at this school! I can't believe Mommy was ever that little! Mommy said that if there was time tonight she would show me a photo of herself on her first day at school, but when we got home there wasn't time for that - I had to shower and then go to bed. Maybe she'll show me tomorrow.

I have a lovely teacher. Her husband works with Mommy, so I'd met her before. There are lots of my friends from pre-primary school who are in my class, including my best friend! That means that I will have friends to play with when I come to school.

Tonight we got to draw a picture, eat a picnic supper, and then we went to play. (While we did that, Mommy and Daddy had a meeting where my teacher told them all the things they need to know for next year.) The school has kept our picture - I don't know why they want it, but maybe it's because they want to put them up at the start of next year like my Bumblebees class did this year. I had SUCH a fun time.

Over the past few months I've been growing tadpoles. We caught them on Rondebosch Common and since then they've been living in my bedroom. I feed them pondweed and fish food. First they grow back legs, then front legs, and then their tail disappears.

Once they grow front legs, Mommy and I put them in another container and then we release them. Some we've released in Mommy's pond at her school. Others we've given to Oupa to put in his pond. Oupa has a HUGE frog in his pond, and some fish, so I don't know if my frogs will be eaten by them or not, but Oupa loves frogs, so I want him to have lots.

Here are some photos of some of my tadpoles.
