I am not the only one that loves the start of school. Emmi, too, has been missing school. She asked daily throughout the summer for her teacher, by first and last name. She listed her friends' names constantly. Every yellow bus we saw was chased down. Meet the Teacher was THE MOST EXCITING TIME EVER! She giggled and skipped through the halls, bounding into her teacher's arms. Obviously, they mistreat her there. She definitely has no fun. Ha!
The first day, she was up and dressed two hours before school started. She had her backpack on. She was ready to go. But now, day three has set in, and she is tired. I am beginning to rethink this full-day thing. She comes home from school, curls up on the rug, and moves only to put on pajamas and go to bed. Tonight, she has dance class. I honestly, don't even know if she will make it through class. And? We took the week off of therapy. Starting next week, she will go to therapy two days a week BEFORE school. Well, actually a little bit into her school day, as she will go late to school on Tuesdays and Thursdays. I am hoping that she will adjust. That her sleep schedule will rotate around. They were going to bed quite late during the summer. So maybe that will help. Perhaps, she will even start taking advantage of that nap time at school.... riiight.
