|It's so nice only having to convince one child to look at the camera!|
I call it her sorta first day, because it was only an hour and a half long, and we were there with her the whole time. *Tomorrow* is the real first day, when she has to stay from 8 to 11:30 -- alone. And then Thursday, she has to stay the FULL day -- until 2:30 p.m., which means she even has to nap there. Yikes.
Poor baby girl. Next week, when the boys start school, her world will be rocked even more, because she will not only have to stay for the full day, but she will also be picked up by a new caregiver, because this is Michelle's last week with us. I'm too sad to talk about that right now - really, it's too much.
So let's focus on Clair's (sorta) first day!
First of all, for one small child, we sure had to bring a lot of stuff.
The class did a gradual entry today, so only nine of the 16 kids in the class were there this morning. Guess how many of the nine Clair played with? If you guessed "not a one," you are correct!
She stuck close to us, not even venturing off to explore all the exciting toys unless one of us was near.

She didn't cry at all, thank goodness, though there was some whininess. But for the most part, I would say she was generally unimpressed with the whole thing.
Unimpressed is better than freaked the funk out, so I'll take it.
Because tomorrow, my friends, is another day altogether.
Pray for us.
