I did not CRY! No, I did not! I did not cry, can you believe it! Now that I think of it, I am very shocked that Derek was not staring at my face waiting for the waterworks to start. I think that my being sooo dang sick with a horrible cold deflected my tears. Regardless, our little boy started school and as stated in a post before, I am very excited about it! Drew needs the added structure of the Catholic school, Em needs to have time by herself, Lilly needs to..well, nothing, Derek says I need to wake up early anyways, and I need to have a few hours to get some stuff done and exercise. So far, so good on all accounts.
Drew was so excited to go to school. He made me show him on the calendar when he was going, made me show him on my fingers how many hours it would before I could pick him up, he had a little bag with his folder in it all ready, and we packed some snacks for him to fill up on in his Buzz Light year lunch box. We got there on time (some may be shocked) and after 20 minutes we left and Drew stayed waving goodbye. After school, we went to Inn & Out for a burger and shake to celebrate his brave day!
Today, Wednesday, was a little bit more difficult for him. I think because he had to wake up early and he knew that I was leaving him longer. But once we got there he was better and excited to play and learn.
