    Default First Day at New School

    . . . and momma got through it! It was sooooo hard putting her on a school bus and waiting for them to bring her home. She's going part-time, 5 days a week for a speech/language program through the public schools. She loved it, of course!!

    Ready to Go!



    Sampson sat in the door until she got home!

    Headed to Friendly's for dinner and then we do it all again tomorrow!!

    She was so happy getting off the bus, she cried a bit in the morning. She's already talking about what uniform she wants to wear tomorrow! We visited the classroom yesterday and I was already a mess because the elementary school is soooo much bigger than her daycare.

    Aww, I can't believe how grown up she looks! I know what you mean about the school seeming so big. Jenna started preschool yesterday, which really didn't bother me at all, since it's such a little environment. I felt the same way when Braden went to preschool. However, I was a wreck sending him to public school. I just felt like I didn't know how he could possibly stay safe in such a massive environment. I'm glad that she likes it. They adapt in no time.

    I know right!!! She's actually the youngest in the class but definitely one of the tallest (and heaviest)! Two of the kids are already five because they missed the cutoff to start kindergarten.

    It's not a gifted program, it's actually a Special Ed. program for children with speech and language delays. The district used to send the speech therapists into homes or daycares (after kids turned 3) but with such a high demand for services they bring the kids into the district schools for pre-school and they see the therapist there. Half of the kids have speech issues and half do not so they get to "model" for each other.

    I didn't like uniforms when I was shopping for them because it is really hard to find pants for toddlers. Everything has zippers and buttons and that's an accident waiting to happen. They don't let older kids do leggings/yoga pants but the little kids can so luckily I found some in her color scheme and now I LOVE it - nothing to really think about in the morning.

    Day #2 went great too - she even ate the school lunch which shocked me.
