First Day in a New School


My two older nieces are not returning to their Montessori school this year. Rather, they are going to a new school for junior high and high school.




I pick them up from school on Fridays, while my sister is at work. I took these photos last Friday as they came out after school.


Aubrey, the younger of the two, is a "free spirit" and dislikes having to wear a uniform. She can no longer express her unique personality through the clothes she wears to school. Aubrey has her own special magic; I hope she finds her niche there.


Sarah, the oldest sister, likes the idea of discipline and routine. She is a perfectionist; organized and conscientious.

They will both do well. They are both smart and good at making friends.

Funny... as individual as my boys are, when they went to a school with uniforms, they actually enjoyed the break from thinking about "what" to wear. Of course their high school has a completely opposite dress code... and they love that, too!
Good luck to your nieces... hope they find plenty to love in their new school.

All the best to the girls in the new school. I would think that they would have received a great deal out of the Montessori philosophy of education at the time they were involved in it.
Can imagine that you all look forward to Fridays.

Thank you, Natalie and Pam. They did thrive at their Montessori school, Pam. I have often been amazed by their breadth of knowledge and enthusiasm for learning.
