The kids started at their new school this morning, and everything went pretty well! We all got up on time and got out of the house at the time we needed to. Rylie was very excited to see her old pal Logan again (he used to go to her old school), and eager to meet new friends. In fact, last night she sat one of her dolls on the floor in her room and pulled down a couple other “friends” and said “Baby, meet your new friends. This is Minnie Mouse and this is Foofa.” It was so cute, and it gave me the opportunity to get her excited about making new friends at her new school.
The kids have to take backpacks with them every day to school and we got everything packed up last night. Of course we had to get pictures this morning…
(Ignore the wet spot on Rylie’s shirt, please. She was goofing off in the bathroom and got water on it.)
Rylie didn’t want to carry her backpack on her back, but refused to let anyone else carry it for her. The thing is almost as big as she is! She was so excited, though, to carry her backpack into school.
When we got to school the owner took Bryce and put him in a high chair to get him ready for breakfast. He started crying, but stopped after a minute or so. Then she came up to Rylie and greeted her and tried to get her to put her “buppy” in her backpack. Yeah, no such luck with that today…maybe tomorrow. Once Rylie realized I was leaving she started crying and kept asking to give me kisses. I made the goodbye short and sweet and I left.
About 20 minutes later I got a call from the owner. The first thing she said was “there is no problem” and then she let me know that Rylie didn’t cry at all after I left. She said she was surprised, but so happy that she did so well. She said both kids ate breakfast and were in their classrooms playing and having a good time. I was so glad that she called me! It really meant a lot that she went out of her way to do that. I really think I’m going to like this place, and I think the kids will too! I can't wait to hear how their first day went!
I will post an update later in the week…
