It was back to school time for Reese today. She started second grade!! Every year I wonder how it is possible that she is getting older and starting a new grade.
A week ago she was not happy about starting school at all. If someone asked her if she was excited, she said no. And that is so unlike her.
There was one teacher that she was so nervous she was going to get. She didn’t want this particular teacher because she had heard she was “mean”. We talked about how there was no reason for Reese to be nervous about this teacher as long as she was behaving and doing what she was supposed to do.
All of a sudden one day she just became excited about school starting. I think she processed all of our conversations and knew she would be fine. All of the worry was for nothing though since she didn’t end up with that teacher anyways.
She had a great day today! She got off of the bus with a huge smile on her face and said she had a fun day. She was so excited to see all of her friends on the playground and made some new friends in class. I think she is going to have a great year.
Hayes was still asleep when Reese left this morning so when he woke up he was asking about her. He wasn’t sure what to think about her being gone all day. She got home during his nap and when he saw her he yelled her name and leaned in for a kiss. It was super sweet.
We still have a few more weeks before Sam starts school. I am hoping that transition goes as well as this morning did for Reese.
