May and Buddy returned to school today. Buddy is in 3rd grade at the same Christian school he has attended since kindergarten. May moved to 7th grade at the associated Junior High campus of this Christian school. She has a ride in the mornings from her beloved teacher, whom she has had for the last two grades. In the afternoon, she rides the bus back to the local campus.
Buddy has an outgoing, fun teacher, and he loves his class already. There are 16 students. What a wonderful learning environment! His butterflies have worn off, and his only remaining adjustment is to adapt back to a decent bed time.
May was very nervous, as change is quite difficult for her. But she did a fabulous job today and seemed to enjoy herself. She had no problem with her locker, a major accomplishment. She also seemed to be comfortable changing classrooms and meeting her teachers. I'm so proud of her; I can't believe how quickly she is growing up!
