Today was first day of school around here. Both Hannah and Colby were somewhat nervous, and not ready to see summer end yet. I really didn't know what to expect from Hannah when we got there, but she was happy to see Mrs. W, her aide. It made all the difference, and she waltzed off to her classroom with Mrs. W and Charley before everyone else came in. Hannah made it through the whole first day, just a little tired around 1pm, and asked to come home. But, she rallied and stayed with the class. She was a bit tired when she got home, but immediately went to work on her first day of "homework", which was one simple sheet.
Tomorrow the school nurse will come in to talk to the class about cancer, to ease some of the fears from kids who have not heard of it before. She will present some information, it will give the kids the opportunity to ask any questions and we will show a Peanuts video (that was also shown to her class last year). Hannah asked if we could do this, since she was a little apprehensive about starting school with this year with some new kids in her class. I will go in also, in case there are questions that Hannah needs some back up on. She seems to be looking forward to it.
We both made it through the first day, although I'm wondering if her day was easier than mine here at home alone!
