Yesterday the girls rode the bus home for the first time. Sidney was a little scared but she said she liked it. Riley said it was the best thing about school. I changed their transportation sheet at school and they are officially bus riders (afternoon only right now). Sidney has a cold so she said she didn't want to go to school today but I just think she's tired. She keeps saying she misses me. We really don't have as much time together. I think they're enjoying themselves at school. I know it's good for them to separate from me. It helps them become independent and self responsible. It's a little hard for me - I wonder what they're doing at school, are they having a good time, are they making friends? Then I come back to reality, kick up my feet and then pick up another bon bon!
The girls started KG last Wednesday. They were so excited. So far they love it. On Sunday there was a little whinniness but on Monday everything was fine. They are in different classes so there has been some adjusting to that. They still see each other at recess and lunch. Riley seems to really like being by herself. I think Sidney is ok with it but she says a lot of "it's not fair" stuff because each class does things differently. You would think they would be excited to be together when they got home - But NO! That would be too easy. I'm going to think positively and say it will get better with time as they adjust to their all day schedule.
As for me......I love KG also!!!!! I'll have to say - their first day I really didn't know what to do. There were so many things going through my head - I could mop the floors, do some laundry, tackle a organization project...the list is endless. Sidney even seemed concerned about me being ALL BY MYSELF! I said "don't worry, I'll be just fine!" I still work two days a week so I don't have every day to myself but I do hope to get some things accomplished. I will admit I felt a little sad last week. This is the beginning of their school career. Life revolves around their school schedule now. I can't believe how far we've come from little babies to big girls. They run to their KG class without looking back or saying goodbye because they love school so much. I don't think I would have it any other way. Hopefully pictures will come later!
Emory edit... Here is a link of photos. We still have to rotate and delete some duplicates but you can weed through them. I think there is a vote option. If so, you can do some of the work for us :). http://s971.photobucket.com/albums/ae191/EDBdPhotography/
