Meet the Teacher

Meet the teacher at school today went well. Sam got right in there playing with all of the toys and exploring the room. They had a good selection of cars and trains so he was happy. He loves to color/paint and went straight for the easel. After about an hour he had enough and asked me if we could leave. He seemed a bit overwhelmed and started to cry on the way out to the car. We took him out to lunch at Chick fil A and all was well.

The good: I loved his teacher. She is so kind and nuturing.

The bad: I don't think I can leave him.

Well, tomorrow I won't have to. School is closed in our county because of the storm (Fay) coming our way.

I am not so secretly relieved I don't have to think about leaving him until next week!

You are so funny! It was actually harder on me for T.J. to start school. I am guessing partly is b/c boys are more clingy to their mommas and he was my last! Enjoy your hurricane break and I will say a little prayer for you next week :o) You will do great!!

Thanks guys for the words of encouragement:)

Sam is such a momma's boy so I know that has a lot to do with it. I know he will end up loving it and will be fine.

I keep telling myself that over and over again!
