Shayel and Aliyah started the 2010-11 school year yesterday (8/17). Shayel is in 3rd grade and aside from excited butterflies, was as cool as cool could be. Aliyah started kindergarten (half-day) and was spectacularly calm and completely ready. They both had a wonderful day. After school we went to our fav. Asian bistro for an early dinner then went to the toy store, ice cream shop and our fav. coffee shop. What a wonderful beginning to a new school year.
