So on August 5th we went to meet his teacher. Mrs. Fargason is the lucky lady to guide, teach and direct my precious little man through Kindergarten. We took her flowers! It was hectic and fast to go in and meet the teacher and divide up school supplies. She was kind enough to have popcycles for the kids but Collier wasn't really interested in staying. I was not 100% comfortable with little interaction with a total stranger who I am having to trust with my little boy. We were told that we could not walk them into their class on the first day of school - which meant that I had to drop him off and go in the carpool line. Heart sank, tears filled my eyes because I just wanted to see him get to his class and get settled and know that he was in the right place and ready for his first day. This adjustment is big for me as it is for him! We will walk though it together and adjust to our new norm..
The night before school started, we had a special school night dinner to celebrate Collier and to kick off the start of school! I decorated with school stuff and covered the table with brown paper. When Justin brought the kids in they both were so excited to see the table. They immediately jumped up and started coloring! We had pizza, fruit & cheese kabobs and edamame....all things that they love! Plus a bunch of smarties! Thank you pinterest!
And Finally the big day had arrived. I held it together. Dropped him off in carpool line and as soon as the door closed I cried...ugly cried. I wanted to park my car and run in and be sure he was in his class. I wanted the peace of mind. I had to let go! Yep, let go a little. Loosen that Momma, all protector, know what my little boy is doing all day grip and just drive away. It was hard, but as Justin said, it was probably best so that he didn't see me cry and that we started off our routine as it would be every day!
His favorite thing was PE with coach Brown.
His least favorite was rest time.
