One down, and how many more to go????

That's right
the first day
went off without a hitch.
I take it was good for
Claire too,
as she was asleep in the car
when Dylan came to pick me up.
I couldn't get a lot out of her,
but what I did hear was all good.
Dylan says
she was talking
90 miles an hour
after school.
I miss that.
By the time I'm home the novelty has worn off,
and it was just another day at school.
The best part of my day,
Claire asking me to
lay down beside her
and just talk
at
bedtime.
Gotta love this kid.
She is my child,
mom you'll appreciate this
She has had stomach problems for the last
few days
at first I couldn't figure out what was wrong,
then I remembered all those
times I made myself sick
(i even got sent home from school on the first day of second grade-- I puked)
worrying
(I say it in the past tense like I never do it anymore:D)
Yep, that's my kid
stomachache from worry and all.
As far as my first day went,
well,
it went well.
I have
101 students
two of which I can see
will give me a run for my money,
but hey,
a pretty good percentage if I do say so myself.
I love teaching
and I am so grateful for all that I have been blessed with.
I am thankful for the friend
that left me a voicemail
saying she checked in on Claire at school this morning
she was doing fine
I needed to hear that,
I am thankful to the friend who
dropped a little something by the office for me.
It made my day!!!
I have been so distant
and wrapped up in myself,
and I am so grateful for
all the well wishes
and emails
and prayers.
You have been my light,
you have been my strength.
I made it through this day because of all of you.
Thank YOU!!!!

glad to hear it all went so smoothly:) I saw Claire in her class on the first morning and she didn't look sad or scared at all:)

YAY! I'm so glad that you had a good first day. You know that can only be a good omen for the rest of the year!

I can't believe she is in Kindergarten already... gone all day... (Is it bad for me to say that I'm jealous? Although, I'm sure when it's actually Luke's time, I'll prob be a little emotional too.)

:) When can I bring you dinner? Monday?
