FIRST DAY OF SCHOOL! FIRST DAY OF SCHOOL!!!! Please forgive the blurry picture, it looked much better on the camera!
Abby did it! She took the plunge and very joyfully endured the first day at Crestwood Day School! For those of you who do not know- Abby is attending "school" at a neighbor's house who is a certified teacher. (Alabama law says that to homeschool you must be the parent, grandparent, or certified teacher.) She teaches in the Charlotte Mason style and has the most beautiful schoolroom set up in her basement. There are 4 other precious girls in Abby's school and they vary in age and grade. Abby is the oldest.
In Abby's own words she "had so much fun I never wanted to leave"! And she can't wait to go back tomorrow.
I however, have now stopped crying and crawled out of my fetal position. And just in case you were wondering, there was a hero's welcome for Abby when Ben saw her after school! :o) More hugs and kisses than I have ever seen! And lots and lots of "I love you"s and "I missed you"s!
