I've seen the back to school commercials where the mothers are waving their children off to school all happy and excited. I fell for it gizes. I really thought I'd be way more excited today... The First Day of School. But no. It's all I can do to keep myself together today. I was nervous all weekend then last night, I maybe slept for 2 hours. I'm on the verge of crying and throwing up.
Jackson jumped on his bike and rode to school this morning, like no big deal. That's what I love about Jackson, he might not like it but he never complains about going. It might have something to do with his Aspergers but whatever it is...I like it.
Sara informed me this morning that she didn't want me to take her to her classroom and that she would take the lunch money check to the cafeteria because it would be weird to have her mom in the school. I cried a little, not in front of her...that wouldn't be cool. This is her first day in public school, she's been homeschooled k-through 3rd and for some reason she's really old today. Luckily, as we pulled up to the front of the school she changed her mind so I parked and ran excitedly to the front door so I could walk with her to her room. It's the little things gize, that make me happy. She was the most excited about going to school until the very moment I dropped her off in front, then she became nervous, but knowing Sara, she's going to have a good day....but I'm going to be sick to my stomach till it's time to pick her up. Maybe I'm a little over protective but...
Emily doesn't technically start today. She get's to have 1 hour sample Kindy today then starts on Friday. It's going to be torture!!! She is really excited...a little nervous but more excited and I think it's going to be hard that it's only half day and that she won't be going again till Friday. Even worse, she doesn't start till 12:15 so she has all morning to torture me about what time it is and when are we going to the school.
Hyrum is just plain freaking out. He's screaming "I want to go to school!" except he's crying so hard that it sounds more like a crazy person rantings. Poor guy...I hope he doesn't keep this up the rest of the year.
