School Days

Barrett started school yesterday, and to say he liked it would be an understatement.

We loaded up his nap mat, lunch box, and backpack, and he seemed to know something good was going to happen. He sat with his stuff by the door almost begging me to hurry. Here he is waiting on his mommy.

When we got to the church, he was so happy. Then, when we got to his class, he lunged at his teacher and went right to her. She put him down to play while I filled out a little paperwork, and he NEVER looked back. He was the first one there, and he was perfectly fine having all the toys to himself.

As I finished my paperwork, a few other kids arrived. He seemed excited with each new arrival. Since he was fine, I was happy to run and enjoy my free day!

I really got nothing impressive accomplished, but it was great to have time alone for a change.

When I went to pick him up, they said he had a great day. He was so happy! As we walked down the hall to leave, he was waving and talking to everyone. He even continued his socializing as we shopped a little on our way home. I am so relieved that he obviously loves with his new little world! (Besides, I am thrilled with some guilt free alone time!)
