Back to school 2011!

Kindergarten orientation yesterday

Trevor and his teacher

Stephen was up and out the door early yesterday!

Ryan woke up all smiles, but then when it was time to leave for school you can see how his attitude changed, sigh!

At school, he did get his happy back, thank goodness!

It's only 5 more hours till I see them. I know I will get used to this, but it is so quiet in the house without my little chatterbox Trevor. Trevor and I tend to do almost everything together, whether I am going grocery shopping, clothes shopping, PTA meetings, driving the other kids to an activity, he is usually by my side.

I was kinda an obnoxious mom today, i went inside the school and walked Trevor to class, OH NO!! Yes, there were the Annie dolls supposedly ready to lead the kindergartners to their classes, but I overheard several kids, oh scratch that, I OBSERVED several kids almost interacting with the Annie dolls (the people holding the Annie dolls had their work cut out for them trying to get the kindie kids to tell them what teacher they have so they could direct them! When my other two went to school they had those green sheets safety pinned to the back of their backpacks, so everyone in the school knew the kindies, and the teachers could look on those sheets to know where the kids was supposed to be going. Yes, the green sheets were a pain in the A - I mean butt, but it was kinda funny and cute to see the kids with their green sheets. (Great photo op too!).

So, I was going to go to a Mom's photography group meet up, but I am not feeling like ventruing out into this weather and I almost feel like I should be sittng by the phone just in case they need me for something, what if Trevor won't talk and they need a translator, or what if he starts crying and wont stop. Yes, I know those teachers deal with the kids who have a hard time every year and I know they are good at it, but I still am having a hard time going about my day.

There were a couple kids crying in Trevor's class when I dropped him off. I felt so bad for them. I was relieved that Trevor seemed ok. You never know if you are going to get the super shy Trevor, or the boisterous mischevious Trevor in these type of situations (he was kind of a selective mute the first few months of preschool). So I am hoping it is somewhere in between those two personalities!

Ryan had a good first day, but he is not much of a talker, so can't say much more than that!

Stephen made it to the bus on time and other than not telling me about how he lost his calculator last year (only found out about that a couple of days before school started), as well as his gym locker LOCK got stolen (which begs the obvious question, if you are using your lock and LOCKING it, how could it get stolen?? He too is not much of a talker, so I can only say that after asking tons of questions, things seem good in 7th grade so far!

Now, I need t go blare some music, run around the house dancing or whatever else I can do now that I have the house all to myself till 3:15!!


  1. Only 4 more years to go for me. *sigh*

  2. Hi Trevor and his mom
    My name is Jenna, you are a brave, courageous fighter and an inspiration. That is great that you entering your first year of school, I hope it's a great year for you and that you make some new friends. You other boys are handsome, cute and adoreble.
    I was born with a rare life threatening disease, and have 14 other medical conditions, and developmental delays.
    I wrote this poem
    Each of us are Special
    Each of us different,
    No one is the same
    Each of are us are unique in our own way,
    Those of us who have challenges, we smile through our day.
    It doesen't matter what other's say
    we are special anyway.
    What is forty feet and sings? the school chior
