Max goes to School!!! Today was Max's second day at his Asilo (Italian Pre-School) and he did not even cry when I left him;-) Yea! The Italian pre-school system has a long settling in process where the parent waits at the school to make sure their child is doing OK. So this was day #2 of me sitting in the hallway while Max spends a longer time each day in class. Today he stayed for 1.5 hours tomorrow he stays for 2 and on Thursday if everything is going well he gets to stay for lunch.
These are the stairs that lead up to his class which is called Picolissimi. Here he is asking me, "Mom what do those numbers say?" He really likes this tree mural that leads up to his class;-)

Today we went swimming at a public pool in a town called Creazzo. In Italy it is required that you wear a swim cap in the pool...So far nobody has been able to give me a very good answer why this is. I have heard that it is so that they don't have to clean the filters very often, but it seems like there must be more to it than that. Although you can't actually tell it from this photo, Max LOVED his swim cap. Who would have guessed? He did not even want to take it off when we put his regular clothes back on him and left the pool. I only got it off his head because he feel asleep in the car on the way home so I took it off him before I put him in his crib for a nap. He may wake up looking for it because that is how Max is.
