1st Grader!

Unfortunately my digital camera is broken. I tried taking a picture on my phone this morning and it didn't turn out well. So I'll pretend it's the first day again some other time and take a picture again! BUT, Wilson had a wonderful 1st day of school! Yesterday when I got home from work he was acting out. A lot. It dawned on me that he was nervous and didn't know how to let it out. So we talked about 1st grade and all of his friends who are in his class. He had a little trouble going to bed. We talked on the way to school about having courage and being brave and how much fun it would all be. Ya'll aren't going to believe me but he walked to his classroom by himself on the first day! From my room all the way down the hall to his room! Mrs. Engram and Mrs. Dowd would have been so proud of him! I watched him walk all the way there, so happy that he wasn't afraid. There were many days last year that weren't easy. But Mrs. E and Mrs. D helped him through it. Tonight when I put that tired boy to bed he said "I can't wait to go back to school tomorrow!" That's my boy! I'm so glad his fears have subsided so he can actually enjoy himself. :) Hoping for continued peace for him.

My first day went very well too! I even got a gift...a box of instant pudding. Hmmm... :) Thought everyone could use a good laugh!
