ready for school?

**new backpacks? check
**school supplies? check
**new shoes? check
**new socks?check
**new underwear? check
**all shots up to date? check
**bus passes? check
**new uniforms? check
** food to make lunches? check

Sounds good right? All prepared until..." Hi Mrs. Turner. I just wanted to let you know that Ivan will be able to begin his services on Wed. Not the next week as we orginally thought." Jaw drops, and hits the floor. I knew that he would be going to school, but I didn't think quite yet. Now today I have to prepare for my BABY to go off to school. So I am going to go and find him a backpack and get it packed with his "school supplies"...diapers, wipes, extra outfit. Not as fun as new markers, crayons etc. but...

What a huge step! I thought I was ready, but now I am not so sure! :( I am going to miss my little buddy. It's a good thing Ben took this week off because I know there will be a lot of tears!

How sad. But think of how great it will be for him. But I bet it will be a hard week. Update us for sure.

Awww...I don't know how I'll feel when Wyatt starts school finally... even when it's just preschool, I know I'll feel sad. I can only imagine what you're feeling right now! I'm sure it will be good for both of you! Keep us informed on how it's going! and yes we wear uniforms, but didn't at the school in Norfolk, although they might end up going that way there.

Glad the first day went well, ours is next Tuesday. I too have been worried about my youngest being the only one left at home.
