The Sixth Day of Kindergarten

Today is the sixth day of kindergarten. And the little ones are tired.

This has been a long week. For most, it is their first time in a class of 30 students. Even if they went to all-day preschool, like Rafa did, they probably were in groups of only 15 students or so. And they probably took afternoon naps.

Today, as we lined up to go in to school at 8:00, one kindergartner was sucking his thumb, and two others were clinging to their mothers' legs and crying. Even Rafa said he was tired and his hand found its way into mine.

Growing up is hard work.
