We made it! Allie woke up excited. She ate breakfast fast and got dressed fast. We were all ready to go early and got out the door without fuss and on time! But as we got closer Allie got quiet and as we were walking in she started saying she was scared.
We got some cute pictures, of course!
It was finally our turn to take first day of school pictures!
The corrected Allie’s name on her cubby! When we got there we hung up her backpack and her bus tag and took a few more pictures and then it was time to leave. She kept saying she was scared. We walked toward the door and she ran after us. I sat her at a table with a puzzle and she watched us leave. I thought she’d run after us, but she just watched.
After school she took the bus to Bridget’s. The bus got there late so we had some slight worry. Bridget said there was confusion after school because not everyone had the transportation paperwork.
They took a couple pictures after she got off the bus.
My big girl! Allie had fun time and I think she wants to go back. She was happy to be reunited with her friend Ava, so that will help with the transition I think. Allie didn’t tell us much about what she did. She likes to be funny and tell us she doesn’t know what she did that day or she did nothing. We did get out of her though that she went down the slide on the playground, she played with Ava, read books and had breakfast of cereal and banana. She did say she cried on the bus though. I didn’t understand why, but I didn’t want to push her. She made it and we are so proud! One thing I was really worried about was that she’s had a lot of accidents since the open house. She didn’t have an accident today!
Now that we made it though the first day… we just need to get used to the daily school grind! Just remembering back to the Little Lancers preschool in May, getting used to all the activity might be the hardest part.
