The first of hopefully TWO first days of school for Gibson

Yesterday afternoon (Tuesday) we took Andrew to the airport. He had to go to Dallas.

Gibson was really sad.

Haven was asleep and wasn't upset.
She said later that she wasn't crying because she's not stuck on daddy like she's stuck on me.

So, today, Wednesday, was the first day of Kindergarten for Gibson. Some of you know the story, but I really want him in another school, but they won't know if he is in till next week, so next week he may have another first day of school at Bethany elementary where Haven will be in Pre-K

He picked out his clothes and new shoes and new back pack for school.

Haven and Elam had their stuff too, but that's because I had to take them to a friends house while I went with Gibson.

We found his class and his cubby.

He sat on the carpet and waited for the rest of the class. There's about 23 kids in his class.

After some songs and a story, the kids and their parents worked at the table on a craft.

He had a great time. He was sad to leave today. I'll be sad tomorrow, because I'll have to leave him there from 12:30 - 3:00.

Here he is with his class raising his hand for the roll call.

This was a very unusual first day of school. I can't really focus on it b/c I still want him at the other school with Haven. It doesn't seem real to me yet. :)

I love the parents being there the first day. It's security for the children and SECURITY for the parents. :-)
