First Day of School 2012

Well Monday was the first day of school -- Connor started 2nd grade and Taylor and Emily started Transitional Kindergarten. Connor - sailed through the first day no problem. Taylor did AWESOME. No crying, no complaining. Smiling. Having a good day. Emily -- well -- Emily is Emily what can I say. All morning after she woke up she kept saying that she didn't want to go to school. I don't think she was entirely thrilled that her and Taylor weren't in the same class. But I know that separating them is for the best. We took pictures at home. Then we took all three kids to school. Dropped Connor off in his classroom. :) He was just fine seeing all his friends that he hasn't seen all summer. Then we went over to Taylor's classroom and let her put her stuff down in the her class. By this time, Emily was very clingy. I left Taylor with Surbjit and took Emily over to her classroom. She was walking and excited to get her name tag like Taylor got hers. That was where the excitement ended. Once we got in the classroom it was all over. She was not happy and started crying. Wouldn't leave my side. When it was time for me to leave - she started screaming and her teacher Mrs. Westerlund had to hold her so she wouldn't follow me. Of course I'm bawling at this time because she is crying. Ugh. They still had to come outside to the inner court for morning prayer so I went over by where Taylor and Connor were standing for morning prayer so that I was far away from where Emily was going to be. I knew if she saw me she'd come running to me. So i stayed far far away. At least I didn't hear her screaming or crying. But Monica (who was standing over by where Emily was) said she stood there crying wiping her eyes with the tissue the whole time.

When we went to pick her up, her teacher said she was the one that cried the longest in the class but was done before recess. But when it was time for recess, she started crying again. While they were out at recess, she got to see Kaylee and that made her stop crying so that was good!

Today (the second day) was much better. She said she only cried before nap time. But she never cried when I dropped her off at daycare in the morning. And Monica text me after morning prayer and said she was fine in the morning so hopefully she is now comfortable and there will be no more crying!! :)
