1st Day, Final Round

Well, he made it. As did I. George went into his new school very happily and immediately started playing with the play-doh. All was well until I said good-bye. He started scrambling to clean up the play-doh and join me. As I walked into the hall, I heard the screaming start. Lee, the wonderful director of his preschool, told me to keep my cell phone on, but "go away". LOL!

Later, I found out that he quieted down after about 5 minutes and did pretty well throughout the afternoon. Transitions between activities were hard, as they always are with him. But, they must be doing something right, because he almost fell asleep while eating his snack! He's home now, curled up on the couch, watching a video about tractors.....all is well in his world.


Oh, and we get Wendy-kitty on Wednesday. No, she won't be orange, but yes, she most definitely has claws!!!!

WAY TO GO GEORGE! AND WAY TO GO MOM! Not to terribly bad it sounds like things went smoothly after a bit. It is always scary the very first day. I don't know who it is harder on Mom or son! I can't imagine what it must be like to walk away from crying baby boy. Ahhhhh.... I will cross my fingers for you that things go well. How exciting to get a new Kitty! Emma must have aced her chores. It seems she did that in no time at all. Now that she has kitty what will the next goal be....hmmmm...I wonder! lol! lol! lol! lol!
