Ben started school at the Singapore American School this week. He’s on his third day and I’m still trying to get some information out of him! He does say he likes it very much. He goes for a full day – 7:50 until 3:00! He eats lunch in the cafeteria with the first and second graders. Today he is even getting his first “hot lunch”. He took his first Mandarin class on Wednesday.
Ben was very sad his first day because he missed his friends from home. However, we are making friends thru out the neighborhood quickly. We have met great neighbors and one little boy in Ben’s class lives right around the corner – he scooted by our house yesterday to find Ben!
The excitement of starting school has been tempered a bit by two things. First, we are not able to get Nicky into the SAS. He’s been spending a lot of time with me and hopefully I will find him a place next week. Second, Boo is really starting to struggle in Quarantine. After Dave’s visit last week, reports back to us have been that Boo is getting very agitated and chewing up everything in his Kennel. We have been advised not to visit any more and just hang in there until Wednesday.
