Marissa is in 1st grade!

Marissa started first grade on September 2, 2008. She is extremely thrilled with both her teacher and her classmates....she has 3 close friends in her class. I am double-minded about that because I want her to have friends, but I also want her to be able to concentrate on her school studies. There has to be a balance there, I guess. She just needs to find it, with a little help from mom :) Here she is on the first day....

I can't believe that these are the only two pictures that I snapped! I usually WAY over-take pictures so that I can make sure I get some really good ones. Oh well, two is better than none! LOL

To my surprise, I got a call from Marissa's teacher on Friday with a postive report. Mrs. Quinn said that Marissa is adjusting to first grade well and wanted to know if I had any questions. I thought it was nice of her to call. Is it normal to get a positive report from a teacher? I only thought that they called when there was something wrong, at least that was they way it was when I was growing up. My mom is a retired teacher, and I don't remember her talking about calling a parent unless she needed permission to spank them! LOL

LOL, that's too funny about the spanking thing :o) We have had Felicity's teacher send home reports on how she is doing, but hasn't called yet. I think that it's a sign of a good teacher to keep the parents informed though! I hope she is loving 1st grade!
