She was a little shy on day one and refused to eat any snacks or meals, but it appears that she has already made an impression on her new classmates and teacher.
We walked into her classroom this morning and two of the girls came running over and said, “YAY, Sarah is back!” and with that, Sarah ran over and began to play with them and gave me a wave goodbye as if to say, “It’s Okay Mom, you can leave now.”
At 5pm when I arrived after work to pick them up, Sarah was in tears…….
She asked me if I could come back later, she needed to stay longer to play with her new friends.
Her teacher told me that she has been attracting a lot of attention from her classmates and that she was having to break up arguments between the girls over who gets to sit next to Sarah for each activity. She actually ate her lunch and snacks today and they said that she really loved tumble time!
When I heard what the teacher had to say about her day, it made my heart smile.
Sarah is fitting right into her new environment and seems to be loving every minute of it.
We are very proud of her and each night when she comes home, she can’t wait to tell us about everything that she did throughout the day.
I’m starting to feel like things really do happen for a reason and this is an environment where Sarah will really thrive and blossom.
I did manage to snap a few photos of the girls on their first day…..just have not had time to download them yet. I hope to post them this weekend and I will give an update on Reagan’s first few days. Today is actually her first Speech Therapy session. We are very excited that they moved so quickly to get her started.
This photo was taken earlier this week as Sarah was riding her big wheel out back on the deck. She stopped and looked me dead in the eye. I love that chunk of hair that is framing her face, those beautiful baby blues…….and that smile that could light up any room! It’s hard to believe she is going to be five in just a few months.
Where does the time go?
Have a wonderful weekend!
