It's a big change! For 8 years my days have revolved around the kids. Even though I've worked part time for the past few years, JC has been with me. He went to work with me, we saw each other multiple times during the mornings, and he went home with me. It was JC and Mom together all the time. Yes, I realize it was time to cut the cord.
Getting ready with back to school goodies for the teachers,
and the kids.
He may not have admitted he was excited, but he sure was up bright and early!
I wasn't worried about this girl at all!
She's a pro at this!
So glad he has her to look after him.
He hesitated briefly when we got to the door, but when we walked in he followed and gave his gift to his teacher.
A quick hug and kiss from Mom and he was off!
He got in line for breakfast and never looked back at me.
Sophie only wanted us to walk her to her building. Such a big girl!
So we all did okay. And then for the first time I worked in my classroom all by myself. Then I had lunch with a friend all by myself. Then I walked around Hobby Lobby, Target, and The Teacher Store all by myself.
The verdict: Kindergarten is fun! He said he was "as quiet as a mouse all day". He didn't make any new friends yet because you have to talk to people to do that and it will be a few days before he does that.
Sophie loved 3rd grade and started her new ballet class tonight. Big day all around!
While Sophie was at ballet JC was out, and when he woke up from dinner he wasn't as quiet as a mouse. He was mad and whiny and yelled at the Wii. I'm sure we're in for a week of this. Taylor has to coach 8 of these kindergarten monsters Thursday night. It should be fun! Ready to do it all over again tomorrow.
