Today I took the kids to school and things were awesome for them. As you know they are been going through crying spells once they arrive at school. They would both start at different times during the dropping off process. Halee would start as soon as we stopped the car and would say that she didn’t want to go to school. Gavin would be perfectly fine up till we crossed the entry way in to his room.
Today was different. Halee did say that she didn’t want to go to school once I stopped the car, but she was just pouting not crying. We walked to Halee’s class 1st and she had a sad look on her face, but not crying. I told her bye and she went to her teacher and started talking to her. Gavin needed to go to the restroom (school ritual) and then we walked to his room and I was bracing myself for the crying to start once we crossed the entry. Nothing happened, I looked down to make sure that he was alright and he was just looking around. I hung up his coat and backpack and he was still fine. The teacher came over and should us some photos they took of the kids with their friends and Gavin was standing there hugging his friend Michael. (very cute) I told him that Nana & Papa would pick him up today and said that I would see him this afternoon gave him a hug and stood up to leave. He stood there with a smile on his face and waved to me. Then he looked at his teacher and walked off.
It was a really good thing to see this happen today. I can tell that they are really starting to have a blast at school and are at that point in which they are starting to look forward to going each day. It is one of those things that I didn’t think I would see with the way things started out this year. But they are enjoying it and I am glad to see the tears start to fade in the morning time.
