Both boys were very excited to start the school year. Owen is now in Grade 2, and Oliver started at the "Big Kid" school this year in KG1 (which is a pre-kindergarten class). They both had a great first week of school and love their teachers. It is so nice to have them both on campus now.
The school year is off to a busy start, as usual here in Abu Dhabi. It is astonishing though how much easier the start of the second year is compared to the first. No settling in, no figuring out where to buy food, no waiting around for the internet guy or IKEA delivery van. We know the school, the community, and the city fairly well at this point, and, more importantly, we know who to ask when we have questions.
We are all looking forward to another great year in Abu Dhabi! (Now, if only the weather would start to cool down a bit...)
