david's kindergarten meet and greet

Oh how much easier the starting up of kindergarten has been on me this year as opposed to last! I still am anxious and sad about it... I'm still up for a few hours each night worrying over minute details I can't control... I will still cry and cry and cry those first few days.... but wow what a difference from last year (so imagine the mess I was last year! Not good!). Not to mention this guy is just made for school and social situations so he just makes it a breeze for his mama!

I'm so glad our district does a meet and greet for these kindergartners and their parents! Even though we all already know and love his teacher so much it's still a nice step back into the school world. David kept saying he was scared because he had been warned that he would have to ride the bus, and without either of us. We sat next to his best friend from pre-k who was just as nervous as he was to watch the bus safety video before the ride... When it was time to go I was so proud of him for keeping it together because wow so many little ones didn't and I feel like once one starts to cry it can become contagious! But he just followed the leader right out the door very solemnly onto the bus. And of course this became the very best part of the day then in his opinion. That bus. 

This is a new building for everyone and their mother so we are all learning about it as much as we can.. We got to see his classroom and meet some classmates and investigate a little before heading out to the playground before heading home. He really likes those fun green bouncy chairs and the chick-chicka-boom-boom tree his teacher has on her desk. And no, Ms. Carino, he does not want that Popsicle. He doesn't eat Popsicles. Well your loss bud!
I have a few days left. I have a few days left. I have a few days left....
