I spent the weekend doing play dates with the girls, all in an effort to make them more comfortable when school starts in a few days. I am exhausted!
Scheduling multiple engagements here in Colombia is not for the faint of heart. It’s a real juggling act because people are never on time (a recurrent theme I realize). So a lunch date winds up starting at 2 pm which pushes back the afternoon play date to 6:30 pm, which pushes the slumber party to 9 pm. You get the idea. And I want to be in bed by 9 pm. But it’s worth it because the girls seem happy and haven’t complained about school starting. They were even excited to go get their school supplies today!
On a related note, I met Siena’s teacher a few days ago and I really liked her. She was very friendly and warm and open. We talked very honestly and she seemed to really understand child psychology. I think she is going to be a really good match for Siena. She agreed to stop by the house tomorrow so Siena can meet her. So far, so good.
