First Day of School Nerves

On Monday I went to my first day of school at Otter Creek Elementary. Contrary to popular belief, there isn't a creek there, and no otters. However, it's pretty, pretty school on the river! How cool is that!?

Getting ready in the morning has been a pain. We just moved in last week, and I still am living out of my boxes. I didn't do a very good job packing when I was still in Vancouver, and some of my clothes were mixed in with toys. It's a mess!

I finally settled on my warm jeans and Canucks shirt. I couldn't find my green high tops, so I settled for a pair of my flats. I put my panda twins in my bag, just in case I didn't meet anyone to talk to at school, and headed upstairs to leave.

In Vancouver, I rode a bus to school, but now I live close enough that I can walk! It was pouring, but rain doesn't bother me, and there were sidewalks all the way to school. My dad walked with me to make sure I got there safely, and I headed into the two story school all by myself. 

My teacher, Miss Ostrovsky, is really nice. She reminds me of Miss Honey from "Matilda". My class was very welcoming, but it still wasn't like home. I met some girls in my class, and some of them even invited me to eat lunch with them! One girl was really interested in my pandas (I knew I should have brought them!) and why I had an orca on my shirt. I told her all about hockey, and guess what - she thought it was cool! I'm going to eat lunch with her tomorrow, and maybe I'll remember her name. 

It was still raining when I got home, but not it's snowing! Maybe we'll have a snow day tomorrow! That would be nifty!

What's the weather like where you life? Whatever it may be, enjoy it! :)
