It is no different for these two.
|With 10 Kindergarten classes and 9 First Grade classes, this was about 1/3 of all the students in the Cafeteria for the K/1st morning assembly. This school is HUGE!|
They both went in without so much as a goodbye to their Mama and sister. Libby asked, "Where is Melia? We need to go get her! She will be too sad and will miss us too much!"
Oh no baby girl, it is not she who will miss us, it is US who will miss her and your brother.
When we went to pick up the kids, Amelia was so tired, but had a fabulous day. She didn't play with anyone at recess, still trying to figure out friends and where she fits - I know this because she is so much like me. She loves her Teacher and even picked her flowers on the way home.
Seth, well, Seth had a Seth day at school. This boy thrives on structure and routine. Anyone who has ever had a first week of school knows that structure and routine are not what happen right away. He is feeling pretty lousy right now, but he has a FABULOUS Teacher this year, she even called him tonight to chat with him after I shared some of my concerns with her in an email.
It is Teachers like this that will make this year so great for my kids.
How about you guys? Have your kids started school? What was the first day like for them? I want to hear from everyone; public and homeschool Mamas, tell me your experiences!
