It's been 3 weeks since my first little baby went off to Kindergarten. It's been a totally different experience than I thought it would. I thought I would sit with my 2 daughters and cry my eyes out all day long not knowing what my 5 year old son was doing all day and who he was with.
Here we are sending him off to his first day of school Not a tear in sight!
With the help of the school having their orientations and open houses, in talking closely through e-mail with the principals I learned a little about the school before he started. During an orientation they offered that the kids come and meet their bus drivers and get to ride home on the bus on a trial run. I didn't think Jaedin would get on the bus all year! I thought I would be so overly protective that I would drive him to and from school every day.
Going to Kindergarten Orientation
All of this changed. Jaedin was excited to ride the bus and so excited to go to school that it was strangely easy for me. Thank goodness my husband was home the first two days Jaedin left for school and I'm so thankful that he loves his teacher and bus driver and he loves his time at school.
