Just Kate Posted August 28, 2012 Share Posted August 28, 2012 I wrote in this thread and this thread about having to send my kids to school for the first time today. Dd started K and was oh-so-excited, but ds (3rd) was extremely nervous. I was most concerned about ds since he has always been homeschooled and really did not want to go to school. Well, thankfully, they both enjoyed their day! Dd thinks that kindergarten is great and of course she has the most amazing teacher in the world (of course, this is because she never had her mama as her K teacher! ;)). Her day was perfect in every way. Ds really liked his class and said that it was easier than he expected. They played some math games and because ds is great at mental math (thank you RS Math and Math Mammoth!), he kept beating the other kids. He also surprised himself at being good at reading aloud. He likes his teacher and knew better than to compare her to me ("but you're still the best teacher, mom!" :D). I am so relieved. I was prepared for tears and begging to not make him go back tomorrow. But no...he is excited and can't wait to see his friends. I am exhausted. This school-thing is hard! But I'm oh so glad that my kiddos are happy. Anyone else? If you sent your kids off to school today, how did their day go? Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
