|Sean 4th, Bridge 1st, Meggie PreK ~ Frist Day of School Aug 22, 2011|
The first day of school is always emotion filled and then some. This year, it was more so.
After all the frantic shopping for supplies (5 stores y'all! cause stores were sold out of different sets of things) and making sure each kid was properly registered, shots, etc.... We were all ready for the First Day of School.
Hubs took bets I'd cry. Why? All my kids are now in school all day. This is Meggie's first year. In this district Pre-Kindergarteners go all day. With Sean and Bridge, PreK was only 4 hours. So this was new for all of us.
The picture? Speaks volumes! Even though each had their own worries, not one showed in this picture. Just eagerness for the new school year.
Me? I think I've adjusted rather well to having no kids at home during the day. The emptiness I felt at the beginning is no more. I love having time with the hubs and running errands w/out any kiddos in tow.
This is the 3rd week of school for my kids. I still kinda miss my Meggie being with me but it's time for both of us to let go, a little. Meggie has adjusted well and loves her class and her teacher. Bridge, so far so good. Sean, doing okay. For Sean, it helps that he has the same Success Team/Resource teachers to assist him.
I may not have liked this move last year. In fact, I'm still hopeful we can have our own place soon, but I plan to stay in this district. For Sean. He's done so well here. If he can do that well, I know the girls will too, even if they could/would do well anywhere. Sean made such progress last year it was amazing!
