7:00am the alarm went off and we hit the ground running! Breakfast, teeth brushed and all of us dressed by 7:45.......
Our neighbor, Levi, also started Kindergarten today and both boys are excited to get to ride the bus together.
And off they went. We walked home and jumped in the car to meet Mason when he got to school.......(That is the districts tradition)
After getting him all settled in, confirming his go home plan once more we said our goodbyes and left him for his day.
The whole way back to the car River just kept looking for his buddy and not understanding why he was not coming with us.
We all had a day of adjusting and I know it was only day one but we are off to a good start. Tom and I held it together all but the walking home part.....but hey this blog truly only exist because of that miracle little boy who has beat all the odds....I found myself flashing back to the hospital days a lot today. Trusting in others to take care of your child is never easy but because of others our little man is one AMAZING little man.
3:00 never took so long to come....but look a bus!!!!
We were greeted with smiles and hugs and in true boy fashion all the facts of the day were already lost : )
Mason:"We are learning the rules"
Me: "Can you tell me one?"
Mason: "we keep our hands to ourselves. Oh and we have different levels of voices, outside, inside and a zero level voice in the hallway!"
They also read a book about the kissing hand and made an "I Love You" sign language project.
Mason's name also got picked to share his special brown bag of 3 objects that are special to him.
Overall he seemed to have a great day. He did not seem to tired or upset and he wants to go back again tomorrow!
I am so very thankful for the awesome first day he had. I know that there will be times that are a bit rough, but for now I am going to live in the moment of happy. Everyone is in bed all ready to do it again tomorrow! Clothes are out, lunch packed and bookbag at the ready. Deep breaths we've got this!
