“A portrait of my children, once a week, every week, in 2015.”
E finished her second week of school this week. She’s having trouble adjusting to the new environment and all the rules that comes with elementary school but it’s bound to happen. Her kindergarten was a very relaxed environment with snack time, playtime at the park, and a very laid back classroom. It’s a really big change to go from that to one where there are rules for everything and you actually have classes where you study from textbooks and not with songs and games.
Hopefully, she’ll get into the rhythm of things in the next few weeks.
The Japanese thing is another problem we are now facing. She use to be fluent but has lost all of it during her time at her international kindy. It’s now coming back to haunt us since she’s having trouble following what is going on in class. I’m hoping that soon she will pick Japanese back up again.
