Anyhow. Marryn was so eager to get ready that after breakfast she disappeared for awhile before coming back down stairs, showered and dressed. At about 9am. And just so you know, we've never let her just go shower on her own. Yet. Turns out, this works out quite nicely for me;) So then she had to just wait. And wait. And wait some more. And then once again, it was finally time to go.
Mrs. Wright read a really cute story for the kids and their parents and then each kid got a heart sticker to kiss and then give to their parents. You know, to help ease the separation fear from both parties. I might have been more tearful if I wasn't so busy trying to keep Reganne from drenching herself from the water fountain and Christian from crying because he also wanted to do whatever Reganne was doing. Oh, the cycle starts again... And then before we knew it, it was time to pick her up. She gets out at 3:15. We arrived at 2:55 (I know, early? Me?) and had to wait in line, in the neighborhood streets. Marryn didn't get in the car until 3:38. Uh...what have I gotten myself into... Next day ran much smoother and quicker, the kinks of a new school and school year are still working themselves out. She was just so excited to tell me about everything, of course her favorites being snack time and recess;) Once again, she could hardly wait until the next day to go back.
Her first full week went well. She loves picking out her *school clothes* (there is a uniform-like dress code) and getting together her healthy snacks and water bottle. And of course doing her homework;) Drop off and pick up are getting smoother all around, although I'm struggling. Again, aren't stay-at-home moms suppose to well, stay at home! This is tough for me, I typically only leave the house a couple times a week. Not a couple times a day. I'm sure we'll all get use to it. Christian's naps are still working themselves out he usually goes down from 11ish to 3ish but sure makes for a quiet afternoon when he is sleeping and it's just me and Reganne. I thought Reganne might have a hard time with Marryn going to school and her not, but she's doing just fine. Although she talks about herself going to kindergarten all the time now. I was asked if I wanted to join in with a co-op sort of preschool with some other moms at church. Super excited about that. And so is Reganne. She even packed up some snacks leftover peas, ham, bread, carrots and frozen soybeans for her to take to her preschool won't start until September;)
