Veronica is doing really well, she is over her nervousness and fretfulness from which she suffered this summer. She finally went off that diving board, I don't want to forget to mention! Mike got in the habit of taking them to the pool on the weekends and the first week of my job when he was off from work and he reported that she went off it one day, and all the days after, so that's good. That's one monkey off our back, I told her, ha!
The morning of the first day of school I had been up for hours with (jerky) Felicity and Veronica was crying and crying at 5:45. She was nervous and scared, of starting first grade, but her third year at this school! She is crazy, sometimes it's just all too much for her. I understand, I told her, I hate doing everything right up until the moment that I do it.
She is going to sign up for Chess this semester, as you have to be in first grade, so she and Maria will do it together. She had a great summer and so far, so good, in first grade. She has the same teacher Maria had, which is nice because we like her and also because we don't have to get to know anyone new.
She is in class with some old friends from last year and a few new kids. She seems to be doing just great, thank God.
Here's a cute picture from the first day of school, you can tell she's nervous.
