1st day of school

Andrew started school on Mon Aug 24, 2009! He was SO excited!!! He thought it was a little boring though because they didn't get to play outside. But he did want to go back on Tues. so that's good. We live close enough that Ben and I get to walk him to school, when his teacher came by to pick up the kids who don't eat lunch at school, he waved good bye and headed right in the gate with his class. Ben and I weren't going to follow, but, all the other parents did so, we did. There were NO TEARS on either end, I was surprised that Ben let him go so easily. When I asked his teacher how he did, she said "not so good, he has some behavior issues that need to be dealt with" WHAT?!?!?!? I was shocked! After talking with her and explaining our year, she understood a little more, and I think so did I once I voiced how crazy it's been with Bob being gone for 4 months, driving to CO for a week, driving back to WA, being there for 2 days before getting BACK in the car and driving to Bakersfield, living in an apt for three weeks, rushing into finding a new rental, flying off to CO again for another whirlwind week. Being back for a week and spending that WHOLE week trying to get Andrew enrolled in school so that he could start with all the other kids. And completing the process at the VERY last minute the Friday before school started. And BREATHE!! So, I guess it is a little understandable that he would have a few issues with listening. I guess she had to tell him 3 times to not play fight. So, we talked about it and when I asked her about how he did yesterday, she said he did A LOT better! YAY!!!! He also said he had a lot more fun on the second day, they got to play outside and he thought that was pretty cool.
