I remember the feeling...I was terrified. I was going into the fourth grade and the lists came out and I had a boy teacher--Mr. Voelker. I did not think that was going to be a good thing at all. But he ended up being a great teacher. He would take us out to play kick ball and we had S.Q.U.I.R.T. (Super Quiet Uninterrupted Reading Time). Aaaaahhhhhh....good times. So, tonight we went to the Washburn Family Picnic to meet Tori's first grade teacher--and you guessed it--Tori got the boy. Five first grade teachers, four girls and one boy, and she got Mr. Suzuki. I think my stomach dropped just like when I was going to be a fourth grader. I kept looking at her face to see if she was okay. She is very shy at these things,(yes, Tori is shy sometimes) which just kills me, but she seemed to be okay. I think she was handling it better than me. Tori never ceases to amaze me. Anyway, she has one girl in her class from last year and one boy from her soccer team, so that is nice. She put her name card (she decided to go by Victoria this year) on her desk and told Mr. Kazuki (as she calls him) that she would see him on Tuesday. First grade, here she comes....I don't know if I am ready for this.
