Parents of the first graders were asked to bring our children and stay for the program. This was all in German, but it was good to know which faces belong to faculty and staff. Vinnie’s teacher is lovely and looks like a volleyball coach--always a good sign.
Then, there’s the Schultüte. This cone of gifts and treats is put together by parents and grandparents, and we saw some pretty fantastic ones. Vinnie decorated hers on her own, but Errol and I did a decent job filling it. She was so excited for the reveal. At the playground this afternoon, Vinnie wore her new satchel and packed it with candy. I’m glad she is aware of this unfailing method of making new friends.
