First of all, you guys are the best blog friends a girl could EVER ask for. I know you were praying for us, and I truly felt your prayers. I was very calm today...very un-Leigh Ann-like I must admit, and I know it was because you all were lifting me/us up, and I thank you from the bottom of my heart.
We (Evan and I...ha!) made it through our first day of school. EVAN HAD A GREAT DAY!
I was feeling rather tender this morning while I was getting ready. However, as the morning progressed, I got so busy and I think that was a blessing. I didn't really have time to be sad.
Evan ate his favorite breakfast of waffles (he ate two). I dressed him in his uniform, and he looked SO handsome I could have just eaten him up. He was happy all the way to school, and when we arrived he just walked in his room like such a big guy. He didn't shed one tear! He didn't cling to me. He was ready! He got busy playing right away. I went over to get one last hug and then his teacher was showing him his place at the table, so I slipped out of the room. I did get rather teary once back in the car. Derek told me he was very proud of how well I was doing. I think he expected me to lie face down in the middle of the courtyard crying. Ha! The hardest part of the day for me was actually the waiting to go pick him up and hear about his day. All in all he had a great day. He did have some difficulty in the cafeteria, as he has never been in one before, so he didn't eat much of his lunch, but I know this will get better with time. He loved the playground and did well with his counting and alphabet today. His teachers all seem so sweet and wonderful, and I am truly grateful for that! I am just so proud of my little man. The sweetest part of the day was when he saw me this afternoon. He gave me the biggest hug...arms around my neck and legs around my waist. It was a full body hug. Ha! Oh, I loved it!
I love you, Evan, and I'm so proud of you!
