The one thing I wasn't worried about was his teacher. We went in Monday afternoon to see his classroom & meet her & my first impression was great. She is a new teacher this year (she taught for 8 years, then took some time off to raise her own kids who are in school full day now) so I didn't have any reviews from friends with older kids. But her room looked great. She understood AJ (that's huge with his speech delay!) She answered all my questions & noted my concerns. I left there feeling confident.

Finally it was 3:50 and time to wait in
AJ also told me that he met some friends, including his new "best friend" who went to the bathroom with him & play with him at recess. He also said a boy had a cheese pizza lunchable & they talked about their lunches (AJ picked a pepperoni pizza lunchable for his first day). And he saw a few of his friends from his kindergarten class during recess & they all went on the swings together. All of this brought tears to my eyes because we have been struggling with him meeting people.
When we got home I looked at his folder and he did some cool first day crafts.

Everything went super smooth and AJ was so excited! He got right out of bed this morning when the alarm went off and got ready for day 2. Today was just as good and he was excited to learn that "B" day means music. Can't wait to hear what "C" and "D" days are. He's also buying lunch tomorrow for the first time...hoping that goes well. He's very excited for pizza!!
I'm so proud of AJ and the wonderful young man he's becoming. I can't wait to see how much he changes, grows and matures this school year. Cheers to starting off on the right foot!!
