Nico has moved up to the top level of kindergarten. He has a new teacher (Mami-sensei), a new class (Kaki-gumi, Persimmon class), and new classmates (31 total). He is happy because Mami-sensei was always sweet to him last year though she is very small so I don't know how she will manage Nico in case his temper gets the best of him.
It is a great day to start a new school year. The public schools had their entrance ceremonies today as well and I really think there is no better season to start anew than Spring. You can't help but be hopeful under crisp blue skies and billowing cherry blossoms.
