Rose begins school on Tuesday. She has had quite a break but I don't mind. Australian school didn't start until this past week. The problem is this is Roses first day in an American school. I loved the school system she was in and now I am terrified to send her to school here. Schools in Australia were so wonderful the kids really never dealt with teasing because there wasn't a problem with it. All the children were taught from a young age to respect each other. They all dress alike and it doesn't seem to bother them. I worry about the teasing and meanness that comes with American schools. I sit up night and pray she has a good first day. Aughhhh doesn't this ever get any easier?
