Today was our last day of our first year of preschool! It was our first year of being in a learning environment with kids our age (or very close to) and teachers promoting a love a schooling, an atmosphere of fun and learning how to socialize with our peers. Our school was hard sought after (because we are just under the yearly cut-off for age) and we are happy we landed at such a wonderful place with caring and thoughtful teachers, staff and directors. We have at least 2 more “preschool” years before we enter into full-time “school” and there is a very good possibility we could be doing full-time schooling in France before we even land in Kindergarten in the US. It’s all a very exciting prospect, and we are very happy for our experience this year and look forward to continuing our friendships with wonderful people we have met this year and hope to meet more new friends in the coming years.
