LAUREL COMMENCES INTO ACADEMIA
Wednesday, August 29th, Laurel Cupit began her first day of pre-school. She handled the transition smoothly. When asked to recount what she did at school, her only response was, "We played follow the leader!" She seemed very happy and excited to go back on Friday. It seems she enjoyed eating lunch at school and playing with toys. She didn't have a potty accident and didn't go to timeout, so the day should be counted as a success! So far, she likes her teacher, Ms. Tracy. She has 13 children in her class and she goes from 9:30 to 1 pm three days a week.
Her mom didn't shed a tear, and unlike many mothers, felt very little sadness when dropping her off. Her mom was a little sad that Laurel didn't have more to report about her day. Laurel's Mimi counseled Laurel's mom that from here on out, it will be at Laurel's discretion what information gets reported at home. This will take a while to get used to.
Laurel's favorite part about going to school is wearing a "pack back."
