Rebeca wants to go to school

This is Rebeca today crying because she did not get to go in the van to school with Tiago and Stephanie. She had her backpack and was ready to go. She is all worked up!! Well she can actually go with me two days a week to the school in the afternoon. I have not taken her yet because Jessica and Timothy are home with her and she sleeps. I know that she would cry if she really had to stay in the class with the two year olds. On Tues I gave English class to the class she would be in. I love the two teachers they are Christian but.. Can you imagine about ten 2 year olds in a class room all day. Some just stay for four hours for school??? It is not really easy to comtrol all of them and really what kind of school can you really do with a group that big of 2 year old. Rebeca is better off here at home, but I will probably take her sometimes. As many more moms work and the pressure of society especially here in Brazil to put kids in school at younger and younger ages. Babies and llittle kids rarely get to stay at their home any more. Many cases here too home is not a very good place for them to be either. I will write more about school in Brazil for those interested to hear about it.
