The Verdict Is In! - WW

Today was my firstborn's first day of school. He went in his classroom without a peep. He is used to this because each Sunday he gets to go hang with his buddies in little church while we go to big church. But then he is just left there for an hour....

All day his sister kept telling me that we need to go get him. She hear a branch move on the roof and she thinks it's D. She missed her precious big brother. I feel for her. Since birth, they have been inseparable! The moment they awake they must see each other etc etc
I was counting down the hours too. 7:55a - 2:50! Tis long time if you are watching the clock tick. 

When I picked him up (I had to learn that the long line of cars is where I needed to be and not parked in the parking lot and then walking in to pick him up! I guess you learn eh), he seemed tired, but wanted to tell me all about the day. 
He seems to like it and I asked if he wanted to go back tomorrow and it was a resounding yes! 

He likes his teacher. Remembered her name since orientation day and met a friend in his class today, but can't yet remember his name. He says the friend doesn't hit and he likes that about him.  We've talked some about picking good friends. 

I too, like his teacher, she is very warm and welcoming, so the verdict is in. He loves school and am all cried out. Now to see what they'll do with him already knowing so much. 
Here's to a new journey for our family.
