Nick had a really hard time waking both Ashleigh and myself up this morning...ugh. I got home from work at 430am and had to wake up at 7am to get Ash up and ready. I am TIRED today-and I work again tonight!
Anyway, the whole way to school I was still trying to convince Ashleigh that she would have a good day at her new school. For some reason she just did not believe me... This picture I took is outside her school BEFORE the nerves really hit.
Immediately after this picture she started crying! Thankfully, with this new schedule I was able to leave Preston at home with Nick while I took Ash to school so I was able to stay with her and comfort her. I met her new teacher, who I LOVE, and we were able to go around the room and see everything, see some of the other kids, etc. I think it really helped her having me there for a few minutes.
I proceeded to tell her a little lie so I could leave her with out a tantrum and it worked really well...When I picked her up after class, her teacher (Mrs. Wyatt) said that she didn't cry at all once I left and that she did really well! Ashleigh came out ALL smiles and yelled goodbye to all of her friends that she had made (4 so far). She was happier than I have seen her in the last week.... She told me that she loved school, loved her teacher, and loved the other kids! Pfew!!! ':-) She talked all about school for the next 2 hours!
Gee, ya think she liked it?And to think I was worried! Ha ha....it just goes to show that I need to have more faith in my husband and his opinions/decisions.
I think this will be a very good school year! (Thank goodness for Mrs. Wyatt....I really like her!)
