First day of School

I know there are excited grandparents so I am rushing to put the pictures of Evan's first day of school up.

We got to meet his teacher last night when they had us drop off school supplies. She was not one of the ones that had attended Evan's IEP meeting, so I had not met her before. She seems really nice and has been teaching for 25 years, so I think she should be able to handle Evan. Harry was rather envious that Evan was going to school and he was not (the pre school starts next week). We made a visit to Harry's class room and met his teacher after getting Evan settled. Harry can have issues with me leaving him places (sobbing, clinging, ect) so I am trying to get him familiar with the new setting and new people. We will visit every day after dropping Evan off in his class room and hopefully that will help.

This is a real milestone for him. I have to admit, when he was first diagnosed with his heart defect, I did wonder if we would ever see this day.Glad to say (as ususal)I worried for nothing.

Smart and cool, and ready for school!
Can't believe how fast Evan is growing up. Thanks for the photos.
And it's very good that Harry can start next week. Remember looking out the window, waiting for my older brothers and sister to come home, and wishing I could go, too. Had to wait for 1st grade because little Byron Elementary didn't have a kindergarten class.

After I left my first at kindergarten I went to my car and just sobbed and sobbed. You seem like you're doing great!

Wow. Kudos to you for not falling apart like I did when I left my first at school the first day. I started blubbering on the way THERE.

Yeah! The first day of school. It's all downhill from here. Before you know it they are graduating and you are looking back saying, "What happened to the last 13 years!"
