Lauren started her first full week of Kindergaren yesterday. She did great! I did ok. Just some tears and I was ok. Lauren almost walked across the street at pick up because she wasn't paying attention but I caught her before she did. She of course couldn't remember what they had did all day. But bits and pieces came out through out the night. I had the parent meeting last night and truly I still don't feel like I know what is going on. I feel like they are just wanting me to throw her into the school and run from her! Which today they said to only walk her down to the kindy hall. I didn't like and Lauren was so unsure of where to go. I watched her all the way down and she only got a glimpse of me being upset. I just never thought I would have such a hard time with all of this!

Today was Lauren's first day of Kindergarten! This week they have staggered enrollment so it was just 4 kids today. I was able to stay with her for an hour and half. We got a tour of the school and some other info that I needed. I could tell Lauren was nervous but she did fine. I tried really hard not to cry until I got to the truck...I tried! I just felt like I was leaving her at the hospital. I felt so much better when she got out of school and said she had fun and was ready to go again! She said her favorite part was eating lunch! Once I came home this morning Allison raised her hands at me as to ask where Lauren was. I told her she was at school she just looked at me and went on playing. She was glad to see her when she got home though. It is going to be a major change for us. It is nice being able to just walk her to school and back home. I say that until it is freezing outside!! Later Lauren told Jon and me that she thinks she is going to like going to school!
