Drew felt really nervous. Last night he said he didn't want to go and I could feel his anxiety over the unknown that is kindergarten. This morning he didn't want to leave his room, but then did after deciding to call the neighbors to see if they boys could ride with them. Drew was excited to go to school with his friends. So, we all went together to the school and that helped Drew a lot. Drew played on the playground and when the bell rang grabbed his bag and found me. We found his teacher and lined him up. He looked scared and tearful. I felt the same way. I gave him a kiss and said, "Have a really fun day!". I had to exit quickly after so he wouldn't see my tears. Plus, it was time to get Jack to his first day of school ever at Monroe Preschool (2 mornings a week). He has wanted to go to school for a long time. Last year he would have a fit when we would drop off Drew and leave. He was so excited and went into the room and started to play right away. He barely needed to say good-bye to me, but I insisted. ;) He had a great day.
Juddy and Drew both had great days at school too! Juddy was thrilled to have friends in his class and said he really likes his teacher, Mr. Barnard. I was concerned about Drew's day, but his teacher Mrs. Mahlkuck said he had a great day! Drew was so cute at dinner tonight. He said, "Mom, you want to hear a secret? ....School is AWESOME!". What a relief!!!! YEHHHHH!!!!!
