First Day of School for Vy and Lolo

Vy had been asking to do something fun (a lot) lately. I myself was getting tired of the whole post surgery recovery process. And although still feel pain, I am feeling much, much better and enough to begin venturing out again. We went to check out the baby elephant yesterday but the public has yet to see her. I was told it would be another week or so. Guess we'll be back. Still was a fun last hurrah before school started today.

And after a waiting game, we finally got the o.k. yesterday for Vy to go to the same school as his big brother. We go to a school out of our boundary and they were unsure if they had enough students and permission to have a third session of kindergarten. He had already been assessed by his kindergarten teacher at another school when we finally got the o.k. Vy was disappointed since the other school had a better playground but still excited for the big day. And yes I was a blubbering crying fool as I saw him go.

And after months and months of preparing this homebody for preschool, I can say all the prep. work paid off. And although he was unsure going into his class, there was no crying, kicking and screaming. It was a joyous occasion.

I don't know what happened here to cause such an exchange of looks. But I imagine that Vy kept bumping into the boy in front and when the boy turned around to see who was messing with him, Vy got all stiff and had this look on his face. I'm thinking he was thinking something along the lines as this........if I hold really still, then he'll see it wasn't me.....maybe if I give this scary look he won't see that I'm embarrassed too and see right through me. How I wish I could be there to help him through these things. Hope he does o.k. No better than o.k.......fabulous. Hope he does fabulous, amazing things on his first day of school. And seeing that it is now time for me to pick them all up, I hope they all DID fabulous today.


  1. can't wait to hear how it went!! D is going to preschool next week and just thinking about it makes me want to throw up. lol

  2. hahaha. That's funny. He'll do so awesome. When I picked up Lolo he was very happy but after the door seperated us, he kind of fell apart. Teacher said he cried for 5 minutes or so. 5 minutes is a long time to hear this fellow cry. But he did find afterwards. Vy did great. He seemed really happy. And since he's a talker we heard all about his first day including lots of not how Toki is.....can't get very much detail out of him. Good luck next week. I'll be waiting for a report on the blog.
