So we were ready extremely early, 7:30 was no problem; the down side was that the bus which we'd originally been told was to arrive at 7:30 and then been told 7:45, didn't actually arrive until just after 8:00. He's supposed to start school at 8:30 and it takes me 35 minutes in non rush hour traffic to get there. Add in the fact that there were three middle school kids on the bus, all being dropped off at a different school along the way, means he arrived VERY late. Oh well, it'll get straightened out soon enough. The bus driver actually asked if he talked. I sort of laughed and replied 'Lord yes, ' because the little man is not known for his silence!
Acer wanted Bill to hold him while we waited and then agreed that he was 'worried' about school, which translated into needing more holding time to reassure him. We told him he was going to have a good day (we know how many toys are in that room, and playing is how little ones learn)
When the bus pulled up to drop him off, it was a different number than the bus number I'd been given. I'm not sure what happened to that original bus, but he came home alright on the other, sleeping while belted into place. Yes, the excitement of the day, plus playing on the 'curly' slide at school wore the little guy right out and he slept. Interestingly enough he said HE took the teacher to the slide. Not sure how his brain worked that out. The teacher wrote a note and said he'd had a good day and that they'd worked on a calendar and he'd enjoyed feeling the dots.
Now, he's down for a nap, stomach filled with lovely grilled cheese bagel, happy with the thought of going outside to play after nap. In the world of the Little Man, life is Good!
Bill will add pictures later
