first day of peruvian school, round 2

IMG_8765

Brady had his first day of kindergarten today. He was so patient last week waiting to start school. Every day after we dropped Riley and Ford off he would say, "I want to go to school." Last night he said he couldn't sleep because he was so excited.

Brady calls his uniform a costume. He loves having a costume to wear to school. I love how Brady's mind works.

Brady got to ride to school in a taxi. I promise that he was much more excited about that then he seems in the video.

When we got to Brady's school, I asked him to stand in front of it for a picture. This is where he choose to stand.

If you had told me nine months ago that in March Brady would be starting kindergarten in Peru and would get to his first day by taxi, I would have laughed. This certainly wasn't in our plans. But when you tell God that you want Him to use you, I guess you can't be surprised when that happens.

Thankfully Brady loves life and just goes with the flow. He said he loved school and his teacher. He made two friends, but he doesn't know their names (nor the name of his teacher). The only thing he would tell me about his day is that the teacher counts from 20 to 0 and you better be sitting down when she reaches 0. Brady said he can't remember anything else.

To celebrate a successful first day of kindergarten, Brady got his favorite drink, Inca Cola.

Peruvian people really do treat children in a more kind and caring way than most western countries offer. I'm glad he liked it, but I'm also glad it's Peru, because that tells me they will love *him* and do anything they can to make him happy.

And well done Mom!

Off to a great start! It is only a matter of months (weeks?) and they will be fluent in Spanish!
Good job!
