First Day of School!
That sentence brings me both anxiety and excitement. I'm ex ited for the kids to meet new friends to get back to learning and to have a schedule again... I'm nervous the teachers don't know my kids, I'm scared they won't follow the IEP or BIP and see the potential in them.
The kids sure were cute this morning though! Lorali said that she wasn't nervous at all but she wouldn't eat, she complained that her tummy hurt and she had a death grip on my hand walking into class this morning. Ethan, of course, was jumping out of his skin with excitement. He practically shoved me into the hall after I dropped him off in his classroom. He was only sad his old teachers and bus drivers didn't move up to his new school with him. He misses his Mrs. Lee and Miss. Becky. He keeps asking if I gave Miss. Becky our new address so she knows where to pick him up at. Last night Mrs. Lee did send him the best video message that brought tears to all our eyes. She was encouraging him to do his best at school and telling him how amazing she thinks he is and reminding him that she loves him. She is definately one of those once in a lifetime-over-the-top teachers that we will all forever love. Even Lorali was wishing she could be in Mrs. Lee's 1st grade class instead of here.
While I may not yet have confidence in the staff at the new school and I certainly haven't developed the trust that I'm going to have to have for the teachers there is one thing I do have complete faith in and that is my kids.... They are amazing. They will make it successfull and they will work hard. They never cease to amaze me and make me proud to be their Mom. I'm sure this school year won't be any different. Good Luck Today Lorali and Ethan! I love you!
