School is in! I so look forward to this day, so that the kids have more structure, and I know that Jaden gets all excited to be around his friends. This is only the start of a crazy school year! Our schedule is going to be NUTS!
We started the morning by getting me ready cause I know there would be NO stopping, not for a while anyways! Then Shyla’s turn! Yes, you read me right! Shyla started a Pre-K program at an elementary school, it’s just around the corner, but for today I wanted to take her. She has to be at her school and hour before Jaden has to be at his! So our morning is starting at 6AM!! She was so cute, she picked out her new school clothes of choice. PINK…. yes I know she is a girl and this is probably normal, however I really am NOT a pink person. She is not a morning person either, but she was up and at em’. She took a shower, ate breakfast quickly, brushed her teeth, got dressed and did her hair with absolutely NO whining. Ok, if you were to be around her, you would know that the whining is a NORMAL thing for her! NOTHING… she was so good…. she even went to take pictures, she got a little upset because she thought everyone was going to school without her, since they were loading in the rig and I wanted to take outdoor pictures real quick…. then when we got to the school…. it started…. she has officially broke my heart…
I expected that since she was excited that she would be ready to let me leave her, but I was not expecting for her to jump out of the car, walk nicely to the teacher. As I leaned down to give her a hug…. yes she held up her hand, and…. waved “bye mom” that’s it??? That’s all?? No hug, no kiss, NO “I love you”…. I guess I should be proud of her, and I am… I’m just sad that my 4 yr old sent me packing so quickly…. It’s all good, I hope she just will give me a hug when she gets home!
I love that Jaden is eager to go to school and learn. However I know that it is way more fun for him to be around all the children his own age. He was all excited this morning, because I had bought him new shoes for school while we were in Ohio. He picked them out all on his own! Being in the charter school, he wears a uniform, so the backpack, lunchbox and shoes are about the only way that the kids can express who they are through their exterior! Hey I’m not complaining, it makes it easy to decide what to wear!! This is his first day of 2nd grade and I can’t wait till I pick him up, I am so excited to hear about his day! He did give me hugs in the car (we have a drop off system at his school) told us that he loved us and gave big kisses. That’s my boy! He is 7 and in 2nd grade and still doesn’t rush his mommy off! He even waves back at me when he walks away from the car!
This is going to be such a fun year for both of them. Schyler is bored, but thankfully there is only an hour and a half between dropping Jaden off and picking up Shyla, so time will fly by!
I know most of you… school already started! How did your first hours go? Ok… alarm just went off, time to go pick up my independent girl! Can’t wait to hear about her 1st day!
