Ellie started at the German kindergarten last week! She was so excited to join her big sis and the other kids. We've been talking and talking about her started once she turned 3. (In case you're confused as to why Ellie is starting kindergarten at the end of May, German kindergarten is a lot like American pre-school. So while they call it "kindergarten" it's not the same as what you're thinking. The German kids attend kindergarten until they turn 6, then they go to their "elementary school."
The girls wanted to hold hands as they walked together. <3 Ellie is pointing out the pretty flowers.
Big smiles as we enter the kindergarten!
Here's where all the kids hang their coats and backpacks up and put on their house shoes. I'll have to get a picture of them hanging up their coats and jackets on their hooks. She's off to the Fische Gruppe with Kate!
She seems to really enjoy it, though the four hours each day are a bit much. So we're gradually working up to the four hours and I pick her up about 1 1/2 hours before I go get Kate. Fun for all...and amazingly, I have a few hours to myself in the morning! So why are we having another kid?? (Just kidding!!)
