Not good, great!

Jackson had an amazing first day! Greg, the girls, and I all took Jackson to school. We got there, said hello to his teacher, found his seat, and I sat with him until it was time for us to leave. He was all smiles! When we picked him up he was beaming! He was talking so fast and so much I wondered if he could breathe! He jumped out of bed this morning and said he was ready for school. I know this year is going to be great!

I still am a little apprehensive. I worry since we as parents never see the teacher. It was such a luxury having so much communication a private school. The student/teacher ratio was so much smaller that the teachers actually had time to visit with the parents. I am still the Mom that is going to walk him in everyday, not drop him at the door. I will still be at the door everyday when he comes out. Most of all I still will be the Mom who is always involved with his behavior/academic progression. I feel so blessed to have all the benefits that pre school has given Jackson! His confidence, maturity, self esteem, and eagerness to learn I owe to pre school.

I have had an over pouring amount of support from other Moms, so many who parent their children the same, and even from one’s who don’t (who understand). You have to do what works for you and your child and that varies with each family. Thanks to all my friends who have been on this journey with me the last few weeks XOXO! Happy 2011-2012 school year!
