It is official. I am a kindergartener. Most of my friends were pumped about going to kindergarten, but not this girl. I’ve been nervous all summer long. I’ve been begging mom to let me stay with my last pre-k teacher, Mrs. Slaton. Oh… I love her so. I’ve even told mom that I don’t need to go to school, because I don’t want to be ANYTHING at all when I grow up, but… turns out, it’s the law that I go to school. So… the day came & I went. There were several tears the first day, and the second day, and the third day, and… well, you get the drift. I am having a little bit of a tough time adjusting, but… it is slowly getting a little bit better.
My teacher is sweet and I really like all of the things she is teaching us. Her name is Ms. Pittman. She’s no Mrs. Slaton yet, but she’s pretty cool (I won’t admit that to your face, but she is). I didn’t really know anyone in my class, but I have met several cute little girls & we are starting to be pretty good little buddies. I didn’t really like PE in the beginning, but as the weeks have gone on – I’ve learned to LOVE that part of my day :o) All in all, I think it’ll be ok. I may keep crying for a while at drop-off in the morning, but I’m always smiling & happy when mom picks me up… so I think she’s going to make me keep going. Oh well.
Now Ardynn, on the other hand, is LOVING her teacher. It’s Ms. Coffey!!! She was my pre-k 3 teacher at Sierra Vista, too!. Ardy goes to school on Mondays, Wednesdays, & Fridays. She asked mommy all the way to school on her first day… “ok mommy. you not stay with me at school, right mommy!? you go home with Annistyn, right mommy!?” That Ardynn… I’m not sure where she came from. How’d we end up so different? That girl would really like to go every day, but mom thinks she needs to be home with her for a couple of days each week. It’s not fair really. Do you think they’d let us switch places?
