A New Season

Today marks a new season in life. Eden started pre-kindy, also known as three year old kindy. It’s normally one day a week or two half days and is play based (at least where Eden’s going).

Getting so big!

In Australia the School Year starts in February and the cut off if June 30 meaning when Eden starts normal Kindy she’s going to be one of the oldest in her class (and likely one of the tallest).

We decorated her Kindy bag together with iron-on badges she picked out.

I got to make my first of ┬ámany lunches! I’m the novelty will likely diminish….

She started late today, 10:30, as they were staggering the start times on the first day. It was a LONG morning waiting but we finally made it there.

Kate was very sad to leave her big sister

She only had a short day today, but she loved it! She will be starting a little earlier next week and then going from 9-3 after that. I’m excited about having some time with just Kate as well as giving Eden the opportunity to learn and grow in a different environment with some lovely teachers.

This time next year she will be starting Kindy which will be 5 days every 2 weeks (3 one week, 2 the next) and Kate will likely be starting pre-Kindy. It’s hard to believe these little munchkins are growing up.

  1. Lovely post. Takes me back to when I was delivering you girls to Wee Folk. Little Katie looks so sad, but I’m sure she will adjust and love spending the one on one time with her mama. Love you all and can’t wait to see you all in March.

  2. What an exciting day….can’t believe our first grandchild is already heading off to “school”….thanks so much for posting these pictures so we can all share in Eden’s big day
    :) xoxo

  3. Exciting! I think this is a much better introduction to schooling then here in Nova Scotia. I so wish Samuel would start kindergarten with half days or just two/three days a week, rather then five days a week and six hours a day. We’re starting him in pre-school this month, just to help him with the transition of going to school in the fall. It’s great seeing all that you are doing and experiencing in Australia. Soon you’ll be here and in the snow!
