Empezamos el colegio / We started school

Antes de empezar a escribir una breve explicacion por el silencio de mi parte: regresamos de vacaciones y en la casa no tenemos buena conexion como ya he comentado antes, asi que no es que haya desaparecido sino que debo esperar el fin de semana (a menos que tenga suerte) y hacer mis posts esos dias, ya que estamos en otra zona. :)

Esta semana empezamos el cole. Ha sido una semana recontra movida, pues nos mudamos de vuelta a casa despues de las vacaciones. Fue un cambio inicial para los chicos pero sin mayores complicaciones. El martes fue el inicio de la semana escolar.


Tim aun no estaba seguro de querer ir al colegio, mucho menos romper con la rutina de seguir descansando despues de haber despertado. Jejeje... Pero al rato, despues de ver las fotos de sus amigos en su libro de imagenes del colegio decidio que era hora de alistarse. Y se quedo muy feliz cuando se vio al espejo con su uniforme nuevo. Ya estabamos todos listos asi que ni bien se vio en el espejo y dio el visto bueno, salio al jardin a esperar que nos toque entrar al carro para ir al cole. Como ven en la foto, Luna lo sigue a donde va. Pero cuando llegamos al estacionamiento del colegio (el mismo estacionamiento del nido al que ella va) ya no queria salir del carro pues ella no queria ir al nido jajjaa.


Mientras esperabamos a papa, unas fotos mas, y aca los dos haciendo payasaditas! Una monita y un inspector!!! 


Una vez en el cole, Tim no opuso ninguna resistencia y empezo a tocar la puerta del salon, tratar de abrirla y gritar para que le abran. Jajajaja. Una vez abierta la puerta entro como quien entra a su casa y se puso a jugar. Ya lo estaba esperando su profesora (la asistente que estara con el durante el dia) pero el ni caso, tuve que recordarle tres veces que le responda el saludo. El estaba muy ocupado viendo que habia en su salon.


Toda la semana ha sido solo mananas, no ha ido dia completo. El martes sera el primer dia completo. Vamos a ver como nos va, pero por ahora, todo bien. El colegio recibira la ayuda financiera que necesitaba para cubrir la ayuda adicional que necesita Tim, ese era otro tema que estaba pendiente pero que ha sido solucionado, 30 horas de ayuda adicional hasta abril y luego sera evaluado para ver si las sigue necesitando o se pueden reducir. Esperemos que la proxima semana sea igual que esta semana, tranquila y llevadera.

Before starting to write a brief explanation on the reasons behind my silence: we are back from summer holidays and we do not have a good internet connection at home as I have mentioned before. So, it is not that I have disappeared but that I have to wait for the weekend (unless I am lucky one day at home) and post during the weekend as we are usually away from home those days.

This week school started. It has been a hectic week as we moved back home after holidays. It was already a change for kids to deal with but thankfully not an eventful change. Tuesday school started.


Tim was still unsure of wanting to go to school, let alone to break with the routine of carrying on resting after waking up hehehe...But after a while, when he saw the pictures of his friends in his school's photobook he decided he would get ready. He was happy to see himself in the mirror with his new uniform and once he agreed he looked 'right' he went outside to wait for the time to get in the car. As you can see from the picture, Luna follows him everywhere he goes. But when we parked in the parking lot that we use for preschool - school and preschool are on the same street - she didn't want to leave the car as she didn't want to go to preschool heheh...


While we waited for daddy, a few more pic and here is one of them making silly faces! A little monkey and a P.I. hehehe 


Once in school, Tim has no problems and started knocking on the door, tried to open it himself and yell for the teacher to come and open the door. Once open he went in as if he was going in his own home and started looking around and playing with the toys. His one to one was already there waiting for him  but he had no interest at all. I had to tell him three times to say hello. He was too busy looking at what was on offer in his classroom.

I am lucky as his transition plan was excelent and for almost two months he visited his classroom twice a week and twice a week (different days to previous visits) he had school lunches with the big children. So he knew where he was going.


All week he has been in only mornings, not a full day yet. Tuesday will be his first full day. We will see how he gets on, but so far, so good. The school will receive the financial aid to keep the staff that Tim needs to support him throughout the school day. That is another of the issues we had pending that finally has been arranged. 30 hours of support unitl april and will then be evaluated again to see what his needs are. We hope next week will be the same, relaxed, nice and enjoyable.
