A First for Megan

Megan is starting kindergarten this month. It’s been a bit of a process. The first day of school for the county was August 12, but her first full day isn’t until August 26th. They seem to want to ease the kids in, though it feels a little hard on us. She went for testing on Friday the 13th and was there about an hour. Today, the 20th, is her “Bear Camp,” a half day for her. We all walked her to school for her 8:30am start and Grant will pick her up today at 12:30pm.

When I came home from the Y this morning, Megan was in our bed, having just woken Grant with her excitement about the day. She looked at me and told me that she was going to have a GREAT day in Bear Camp and that she’d be a wonderful listen and that she’d not talk when she wasn’t supposed to even if her other friends were talking and she’d be the best student ever. Who can argue with an affirmation like that?

She was very excited as we were getting ready this morning. Since Grant was able to walk with us, she said, “Mom, Daddy said he’ll hold my hand as we walk to school. You just need to take care of yourself and Michael; Daddy and I will be fine.” Stinker.

We walked her the half-mile to school and she was animated all along, talking about school and life in general. We paused at a couple points to take pictures and then headed into the school.I stopped in at the office to drop a few forms off, and then caught up with the family in the kindergarten hall. By the time I got there, Megan was seated on the floor outside the room, lined up with other little ones ready for Bear Camp. My animated, talktative girl had already changed though. The poor thing was pale (even for Megan!) and looked a little shell shocked. I think that it was just hitting her. I didn’t dare tear up. I smiled, kissed her head, told her to have a great day, and took off down the hall with Grant and Michael.

Big, wonderful things are coming. I just know it! We just have to get past these first days…
