Sixth Grade and Kindergarten (part deux)
I picked Noah up and he beamed, headed over with a paper bag hand puppet raccoon, and talked all about how school was "fun, pretty much fun." He's not a fellow of many words but he told me it was much better than he expected. He gave it a big thumbs up, talked about how his teacher was kind, and how the kids were much quieter than the kids in his class last year. Noah is starting in Kindergarten here because we pulled him from K. last year. He just wasn't ready or thriving so we took him home. He seems so much more ready to fly this year and we are so happy for him. Oh, yes, he also got a scratch and sniff minty sticker that he is very proud of. ;)
I will admit to crying buckets this morning. It wasn't an easy morning, and this hasn't been an easy season or transition. It's a big change for everybody, and I'm praying and hoping for the best year yet. Day ONE. A success for the littles, and we're all so so grateful for it.
