Today Patrick started preschool at his new school.
Ever since we arrived in Asunción just over a week ago, Patrick has been asking about school. “When can I go to school? Where is my school? Where are my friends?” We thought it would help his adjustment by getting back into a routine and going to school.
Luckily there is a preschool which is conveniently just a few blocks from our house. Last week Patrick and Danny and I went to visit the school. Patrick was a little hesitant at first, but it didn’t take long for him to start playing with the toys and the other little kids there. One of the teachers even speaks some English, which will be helpful for Patrick.
Hopefully we will love the new school just as much!
Patrick’s first day was a success. He practiced using scissors, he painted and he played outside. And he has a new friend named Marcos. The kids all wear uniforms and they bring their own food for snack time.
