Well first day of school today - PreK that is, but he's at the big boy elementary school across the street from our house from 7:15-11:50 5 days a week! We all went through a bit of separation anxiety this morning and I think Rachel has been taking it the hardest. After spending nearly every waking hour of every single day with Isaiah for the last 3 years it's hard for her to let go and let someone else take the reigns, even if it is just for a few hours. I'm taking it on the chin a bit as well. His little pouty face when we said goodbye this morning would probably even make Chuck Norris cry. We hope it'll be great for his development all around. Socially and speechwise should keep progressing at a good clip. We both worry a bit about bullying since he looks so different and is sooooo small compared to the rest of the school age kids. Hopefully he's just too young for that right now, plus they are sort of insulated in the Special Needs Pre-K area.
