First Day of School

We did it!
You would have to know The Boy to know what an accomplishment this truly was.
He goes nowhere and does nothing without his mama.
We talked school up big time over the weekend. Made a big deal about packing his backpack and snack box. He picked out the snacks he wanted to take, ect. He got up bright and early to get ready to go. But I still expected a melt down when it came time to get out of the car. But when we pulled up for him to get out. They opened the door and he said "my name is Havid, and I have a backpack."He jumped out of car and went in with not so much as a tear. He said he had a great time and loved his teacher! You could have knocked me over with a feather. I had steeled myself for a huge meltdown that never came.
Today however, he was not quite so eager. He didn't want to get up and didn't want to go. But by the time I got him dressed, in the car and there, he had calmed down enough to just go right in again. I was so relieved.
Now if we can just keep this going for ohhhhhhh say 17 more years.

Our little one started off eager as well.Even now every Am,shes excited,but when we get to the classroom door,she locks up on us. Starts hiding behind me,and whining. The teacher is wonderful about louring her in. Its good on the one hand,shows attachment for us.But its tough to leave her when shes like that too. David sure is growing up.Jill
