Granddaughter is SO Excited About School
August 13, 2019 8:13am CST
My granddaughter, Payton, started back to school last Thursday and she has been SO excited. She is in second grade this year. It has been a battle getting her to bed. She is excited and can't wait for the morning to get ready to go to school and then get there. She got a new teacher to the school this year and bonded with her on the very first day of school. She announced that her teacher also had a turtle for a pet and that they were going to be best friends. Payton is a good student and was on the honor roll with mostly A's all last year. I am hoping her desire to learn continues and that his new teacher will spark even more desire into her little mind. Have your kids or grandkids started back to school yet? The kids in this area all starting last Thursday, Friday or yesterday, Monday. I just love seeing her so excited. Photo: Pixaby, public domain

Awww! I'm glad to hear she's excited about school! It's always good when the little ones enjoy it. :) I think the kids in my area start in September, but I'm not sure. As for my own house, my two nieces are home schooled, and their older siblings have graduated.
My granddaughter loves kindergarten. Her school year is April to March, so summer break started July 19. I asked her the next week how school was and she said, "School is gone, psssht" throwing her hands out to show just how "psssssht" school was. It never occurred to me that little kids experiencing their first long break really don't understand it!
