School Girl

We officially have a school girl! Blair started PreK this week. It's bittersweet, of course, but she and I were both ready. Blair needs the interaction and the environment, and Mama needs the time to work in the house and play with baby brother. 

Brad was out of town, so Blair and I headed over to Open House to meet her teachers and take school supplies. She was so excited. She promptly drew a "B" on her name card at her seat. Whoops.

The next day was the first day of school She was again very excited and very apprehensive at the same time. I took her and picked her up for the first three days.

The second and third mornings were a little tough. She had some anxiety about leaving home. She cried when we got to school, but her teachers loved on her and made it better. And she threw up. Whoops. Again. I had forewarned them that she might do that.

We expected an adjustment, so we'll continue to encourage Blair and get her adjusted. I have no doubt that she will love school after the first little bit.
