September 1st was not only the first day back to school for us, it was the first day of Kindergarten! How ever did that happen? It was also that first day that Claire rode the bus home. I am so proud of my brave little girl, she loves riding the bus and is really enjoying her independence. I am really enjoying two less trips all of the way down to school. Claire has therapy the three other days, so for now, it is just twice a week home. Once we get the classroom situation settled in, I think she just might even ride the bus to school, so exciting! The classroom situation, there always has to be struggle to make a story good, right? At the start of the year, Claire was slated to be in the same preschool/kindergarten class that she was in last year. The problem with that is there were a bunch of rookies that got moved up into the class and it was chaos in there. Claire really does pretty well in chaos, but this was a little much. So I asked to see the k-3 class. I was able to see it that Friday and the same day get confirmation that she could switch! I seriously don’t think we have ever had anything happen that easy. Wait a minute, maybe that was too easy, it got more complicated. We were told that today would be her first day in the new class, but it didn’t quite happen like that. You forget just how unique your kid is when there needs to be a complete state of the union before moving to the classroom on the other side of the parking lot. I am actually really happy that both the old and new team are taking the time to be sure that no details get missed, Claire is really surrounded by a lot of amazing people. So hopefully next week she will be in the K-3 class as her new home, then we will start integrating her into her mainstream class. Eventually we will get all settled in and it will be Christmas break, oh well!
One thought on “Kindergarten!”
It's great the Claire has been so flexible through the transition. You have done such a wonderful job getting her in a classroom where she can succeed. I'm sure she will amaze her teachers….when she finally gets there.
