Week One Down!

Whew! That was fun.....or not..............

The first week of school was interesting to say the least. Nick is loving third grade although he says there are alot more rules. He had math homework only all week, but this week starts all homework for math, vocab, spelling and AR reading.

Jacob's first week went okay. Other than the screwy pickup and dropoff issuies we had since he is in ESE kindergarten and they get out earlier then the rest of the school and are dropped off and picked up differently then everyone else, which of course NONE of this was communicated to the parents prior to the start of school so that was one big mess for the first 2 days. He will not go into the cafeteria to eat lunch - he has issues with the echoing in there and is terrified of the stage so he is spending lunchtime with the behavioral specialist (a way to get some extra therapy and one on one time at least!) and eats in the classroom when they return there. So they are working on transitioning him into the cafeteria. Good Luck I say.....

Alex was ready to go into school as well the first day. He also wore his back pack and found a comfy chair in Jake's class that he though could be his own. When we left he was quite upset that his brothers were not leaving with us. I heard "Oh no - Nicky! Jacob! Oh No!!" all the way down the hall leaving the school on day one. By day two in the car rider line I got a pouty lip and low whine and sobs that he tried to hold back while whispering their names under his breath. He shouts with screams of glee when it is time to go get them at school though! His days have been quiet, but I think he is secretly happy to have control of the TV and toys again during the day! We are going to try to check out some library time or Parks and Rec things for him to do a few days a week.

It sounds like you had a successful week. Everyone went where they were supposed to go and everyone got home eventually... Not bad!! Next week will be better. I'm sure Alex will get used to the schedule and having all the stuff to himself... :-)
Have a great week!
It sounds like a good first week!
