Well, they are back to school now. Poor Jane and The Boy… we found out that they had to switch schools this year because the school they’ve been going to was overcrowded, and we are out of district. (Long story.) So, they were more anxious than usual for the first day of school. Jane had a hard time falling asleep last night because she was so nervous.
I wish I could say it went perfectly and they both came home happy about the change. But, with one day under their belts, they are both still a little sad. They miss their old school. They miss their friends. They don’t have any friends at their new elementary school. So, I am praying (literally) that they will adjust quickly to this new situation. Poor kids. School anxiety makes me hurt for my kids.
Lizzy was more excited than nervous.
It is her second year at the middle school and though last year started out rough, she ended up enjoying herself for the last few months. (Did you notice the hole in her shoes? I didn’t until I was editing the pictures. Embarrassing.)
