Ahhh, routine!

After Monday's holiday, and yesterday's snow delay, George finally started at his new preschool today.

I think it went well, he went in without a fuss and started playing right away. I snuck out when they gathered the kids for watercoloring. The only thing the teachers asked me to do differently tomorrow is to bring a bigger snack! Apparently, my picky eater was trying to steal everyone else's!

I have been amazed at the success we've had in this school district. Normally, dealing with special needs children is a long and difficult process. But here George was enrolled in a great class within 24 hours of meeting with our case manager! AND....in order to maintain a teacher/student ratio of 1:3, they added a new teacher to his preschool this week! Unreal, we are so lucky to be working with so many knowledgable people.

So now we return to a more structured day, which is so valuable for all of us. George won't be bored, I'll have some time to get things done, and Emma won't feel like she's the only one away from home during the day.

I have been quietly following your story lately, Meg. I am so glad George is settled into his new school and daily routine. It sounds like a really wonderful program. Happy housewarming to you too!

That's fantastic that it's going so well for you both! And when did he start looking so grown up?
