School Days

August 12th, 2009
Addie and Alex had their first day of school today.
Even when I was staying at home with Addie and Alex, I knew that around 2 years old that I would put them in school part-time. So, I did a lot of research checking out places here. The place that I wanted to send them was on a HUGE waiting list, but I went ahead and took the chance. I have stayed in touch with them over the past year and this fall, they had two openings for Addie and Alex !
I took them to school on Wednesday and daddy met us there. They did as expected. Addie ran right in and Alex was a little hesitant. I am thankful that for weeks before they started that we took them there several times to check out their classroom and of course the play ground!
The first day was not as hard as I anticipated it being and DEFINITELY not as hard as what people told me that it would be. I truly feel that having confidence in where we are sending them has made the transition so much easier! We could not have them enrolled in a better program!

This chalkboard in the classroom has lots of magnets. Addie ran right for it!
Even the first day, she started acting like she owned the place! She knows right where everything is at and moves about like she has been there for months!
Alex is still investigating! Anxious to see how he does this week!
Imagine that, needing to sit in the ELMO chair on her first day :)
The kids had their 2nd day of school on Friday.
Both of them ran right in the front door. Alex was still a little hesitant at first, but did great! From what I understand, he whimpers for a few minutes and then finds something to play with. When I picked them up on Friday, the 6 kids in the class were sitting watching a video. But of course, as soon as Addie saw me, she had to get up and start pointing everything in her classroom out to me! Looking forward to a great week!
