Joy School today was a complete success for Noah. He's been so ready to go for weeks, even though he hardly knew what to expect.
Noah came home with a full report of the cool trains
Everett has at his house, meeting Joy Boy, playing outside, eating
goldfish and grapes for snack, and remembering what just about everyone
brought for their show and tell item. He was pretty excited to pack up
Pontoon Dusty, Maru and Pincone (all from the new Planes movie) in his
backpack to share with everyone. It's a good sign that he cried when I came to pick him up because he didn't want the fun to end, right?
Right now it's just Joy School, and thank goodness.
For over a year Noah has been asking, "Mom, am I five yet? Can I go to kindergarten now?"
He has no idea how happy I am that we don't have to cross that bridge for two more years.
Plain and simple, I just love being with this kid. So while things like grocery shopping and errand running will surely be easier with only my Luke in tow, I'd really just rather experience everything possible with him around.
But, HE needs to spread his wings a bit. He needs to learn the simple and sweet things that Joy School offers, including becoming buddies with those five other sweet kids.
So, Joy School it is. Two days a week is a good way for both of us to start adapting to being away. I need more practice than he does for sure.
