It Got Better

For Matthew, starting school was like going over a hurdle. Once he was over the top, it was smooth sailing. I could tell by Tuesday evening that he was (there is no other word for it) relieved.

On Wednesday morning, he cheerfully got dressed and headed to the bus stop with his new BFF Lindsey. She has two older sisters, one of whom has been especially kind to Matthew. The agreed to pose for a picture.

I love how Caitlin is the only one actually looking at the camera. She’s a keeper.

Matthew was so delighted to be heading off to school on the bus we didn’t get a clear picture of him getting on.

So far, I know the following information about school: he sits at the yellow bug table, the “pink girl” stole Lindsey’s seat, Lindsey gets in the “sad” line (he means SACC) at the end of the day, and his teacher wore a white shirt.

I couldn’t make this stuff up if I tried.

More importantly, he is happy. The bus ride is fine. He loves his teachers. He has a friend. What more can you ask for?
