Ty is adjusting to school tremendously. He’s so excited to go to school each day – He wakes up easily, gets dressed, eats breakfast, and even puts his shoes on when I tell him to do so. It’s a miracle, I tell ya.
Here he is seconds before heading in for DAY TWO of Pre-K.
After the horrible first day we had, I was a tiny bit nervous about heading back the second day. Ty, though, didn’t seem phased. He was excited about going even after the drama AND trauma of the first day. He is still having a little trouble adjusting to “circle time” first thing in the morning, but each day he gets a little closer to joining in (from what his teachers tell me). Apparently, “circle time” is much more intimidating than we thought.
Although, I have to admit, when I’m placed into a large group of people and have to go around a circle telling things about myself or have to speak at all for that matter, I literally ‘sweat it’ until my turn comes. Don’t you? I guess, Ty figured it wasn’t worth it and simply decided not to do it. He stands WAY back and waits patiently until they finish. Then he grabs a name tag with the rest of them and heads to centers. The groups are broken up into much small numbers for those. He obviously figured that out quickly.
Tomorrow is the end of his first week and he’s handled it like a trooper. I’m so proud of him.
It was obvious the teachers thought I was completely insane, but here is my attempt to capture pick-up time on his second day. He was all smiles. My heart did a little flip-flop in my chest when I drove up and saw that big grin.
Man, it was so boring. Wes and I had to find something to do to entertain ourselves…notice the Target cup. We live for Target. I’m just saying…
HEY LOOK! There’s Momma! She does exist!
Oh, wait…I see him! Do you? Look closely…brown shirt on the right.
all buckled in and being a little bashful because of my bombardment of questions regarding his day. Poor kid. I had a million of them and all he wanted to do was watch Wall-E on the drop down DVD.
