Ava's first day of school


Today was Ava's first day of school. Here she is with her new teacher, Mr. Clark (or "Mr. Clowk" as Hope calls him). I couldn't get her to face the camera as she was so engrossed in Mr. Clark's left sideburn. Or is it his ear?

She's 4, but she'll be in the developmentally delayed 3 year old class. I am quite happy that there are only 3 students in her class and 2 aides, making it a 1:1 ratio. I was really impressed with the school, her class, and her teacher. It's only half days 3 days a week, and I think that is perfect. At least for now.

What a wonderful program. One-on-one attention is amazing. I hope she has a wonderful time learning. I can't wait to see the growth and changes she will do in the months to come.

How terrific is that? I love men teachers. My all time favorite teacher was my male fifth grade teacher. It was so cool.

It looks like Ava will has a great start to the school year!

She is so precious as is your entire family I see on this blog. I'd love to hear more about your stories of adoption.
