THE VERY FIRST DAY {entering the world of pre k}

This week, my three year old son started school. With that territory, comes riding the school bus. I'll be honest, I was a little nervous all the way up to this week with the idea of him getting on the bus by himself, riding to school, & successfully repeating it as the day ended. However, with allowing him to attend pre k classes, riding the bus came with the total package - I needed to understand this, & so did Daycen.

We got up early, ate breakfast, & went over everything that was going to happen. Daycen was not a fan of the idea. He refused to wear his bus bracelet, he didn't want to carry his backpack, & most of all... he did NOT want to get on that bus.

He screamed. He fought. He cried. "HELP ME! HELP ME!"

& than, the doors on the bus shut & he rode away.

We met him at school to make sure that he was okay. The bus driver claimed he calmed down the second the bus started moving. But, I can't say for sure. But I do know, with each day the passes, this whole bus ride fiasco should become easier.

I know one thing for sure though. It came straight from Daycen's mouth - school is fun. The bus ride however, he won't speak of it.
