And we’re off and running

school6.jpg So, the first day of kindergarten.  Edison had a little trouble getting out of bed “MoMmmmm….I am still tired.  I have more sleeping to do!”  But once he was out of bed he got ready quickly for his big day, finally getting to wear his new Transformers sneakers.  After much praying and consideration we decided to send him to public school [very last minute, but sometimes God asks us to be flexible and obedient in the moment — something I am slowly learning]  In the flurry of last minute registration [coupled with an extremely cranky school secretary] he did not get his bus tag that tells the bus driver/teachers who he is and where he needs to go.  So to his slight disappointment, he wasn’t able to ride the bus in, instead we drove him in to school, met his teacher (Mrs. Nadeau – a tiny, energetic and VERY sweet woman) and helped to put his backpack in his tiny cubby.  Then Garrison, Claudia and I left him playing with his new friends – he was already comfortable, excited and ready to get the day started.  I thank God that he is so good at making friends and adapting to new situations.  So Claudia and I are at home, quietly looking at each other.  As we drove home she kept saying “bo?  bo?  bo?”  and she had her hand up in a questioning manner.  But then, miraculously, she fell asleep in her carseat!!!  She never sleeps in her carseat b/c she is too busy being social and giggling with Edison.
