Most of the other students start at the 3 and 3 kindergarten on September 1. Tony is starting early because his mother wants him to be used to kindergarten by the time all his classmates arrive. Tony is a whiny sort who takes longer than most to put up with things.
He didn't seem whiny this morning as he was woken up much earlier that he had become accustomed over the summer.
He spent the last evening of his Summer vacation at the nearby People's Square, playing in a sandbox with a toy shovel and plastic toy dump-trucks.
