Carter's First Day of School

Today was Carter's first day of school. We decided instead of putting him in public school which would mean he'd go to school 5 days a week, we'd keep him where he went last year so he'd just go 3 days a week. I am so happy with our decision and I know it was the right thing to do. As we walked into the school Carter got a little bit nervous and grabbed onto the skirt of my dress, kind of hiding behind me. We walked over to where his class was and he didn't want to let go of me. Then he looked over in the line and found a friend from his class last year. He was so excited and relieved to see a familiar face! His friend pointed to the wall next to him and asked Carter to stand by him. Once they were together Carter was smiling and very animatedly talking to his friend. I gave him a kiss and a hug and we were off. I took Elise to the restroom before we left and as we came out I heard him telling his teacher, "I have a new puppy at my Oma and Opa's house!" It was so cute! All morning long I heard, "Where's Carty," from Elise until it was time to pick him up. She definitely missed him but will get used to his absence, I'm sure. When I picked Carter up he jumped into my arms for the best hello hug. That's the nice thing about him going to school is getting to pick him up! He just has a half day for the first week of school which is a nice transition. He's been excited about school but nervous about napping there so I'm glad we didn't have to worry about that this week. He said he got to play in the sensory bin and in the play kitchen. He told me all the different foods he made in the kitchen. He sang me a couple songs they learned and then told me they made an Earth craft because God made the Earth. It sounded like a wonderful first day!
