Yep, that first day of school has crept up once again!!!
My Littles were pretty excited....well, at least one was.
Shea: Super-duper over the top could hardly wait for the first day of school excited!!!
Avery: Excited only because Shea was!
My little Kindergartner....
All ready for her day to begin!
As I was getting ready to leave her classroom and proceed to Avery's,
Shea whispered to me that she was actually nervous.....
I think the reality of this day had suddenly hit her!
We both got teary-eyed, embraced each other one more time....and then I promised her that I would be back at 2:45pm. On.the.dot!
As I walking out of her room, she was already
Next up: Avery!
Don't let this happy face deceive you into thinking all went well....
As soon as she and I walked into her classroom, she glued herself to my body. I mean, I was walking around the classroom with her arms & legs wrapped so tightly to me that I didn't even need to hold her!
Apparently, she did not want to be in school!
Her teacher was able to coax her into letting go of me....yay!.....and had her 'sign' in, put away her things, get a puzzle, and lo and behold, Avery was having a good time! Puzzles are one of her favorite activities....so all was well in her immediate world!
When I picked up Avery 2 1/2 hours later, her only complaint was that she didn't get chocolate milk! Actually, no one got milk.....but, for some reason Avery just thought she should have chocolate milk!
We picked up Shea at 2:45pm. On.the.dot!
She had a very good day.....she talked my ear off! Telling me every detail! No complaints from her!
However, she was surprised that I picked her up "so early".
She thought Kindergarten went until supper time.....
Awwww, poor baby! No wonder she was nervous this morning!
*And even though Shea & Avery are my fourth & fifth children....this day was somewhat difficult for me also!
It is always hard....that first day of school....
Especially now that I know how quickly the years really do fly by!!!!
