Today was the first day of Suzuki Violin Camp for my boys. They did pretty good but it is pretty apparent that they have not been in a school setting.
It was a long day for them and Zach had a hard time following directions, pretty much all the time, all day. In one class the teacher kept calling out his name to get him back on track. I am hoping that tomorrow he will start to get it more. When that teacher asked the class if they had any questions, Zach raised his hand and asked him, "When is lunch?" Mind you, it was the second class of the day and not even 11am.
Raef was a model student and followed directions like a dream. So, whether they are in a class or not, they are pretty much the same wherever they go. At lunch, they were playing games, and Raef fell down and was crying very loudly. I suspect that if he did go to public school, he wouldn't do that anymore, once he were called a cry-baby or something like that. But I guess it doesn't matter when you know Mom is there for you.
So, like I said, it was pretty obvious that they have not been in a school setting before.
I don't think it will take them long for them to adjust, though. They are both smart kids. I will make sure to post some pictures as the week progresses.
Tomorrow, I will have time to get things done that I need to do. I don't even think I know where to start. However, I am looking forward to some free time without two six year-olds to take care of all day.
