First Day of School

Clayton's first day at his new school was yesterday. He had a really good day! We had gone to meet the teacher night last Thursday. We got to meet Ms. Yvonne, Clayton's new teacher. She is a very pleasant lady with a British accent. (Think of a tall, thin Super Nanny. :) ) There is just something about a British accent that is so soothing. I could sit and talk to her all day.

Clayton had been a little uneasy yesterday morning before we left for school. After I explained the process, he said, "Mommy, you no leave me." I was prepared for the worst. To my surprise, he walked right in there like he owned the place and started playing. No tears whatsoever! When I came to pick him up he said, "One minute, Mommy, I playing with this." I guess that is a good sign. Ms. Yvonne said (in that sweet little accent), "He's a very talkative little one, eh?" I'm sure that he talked that poor woman's ear off all day long.

When we got home Clayton named off all of the children in his class and the offenses (hitting, not sharing, etc.) that were committed throughout the day. He assured me that he did not (of course) do anything naughty. I'm sure that he was the model of good behavior (wink, wink). He then proceeded to fall asleep on my bed while I was taking a shower. Yes, that is a drool mark on the pillow where he had been laying. :)

I'm sure there will be many more stories to tell about Clayton and his new little school. Hopefully, it will be a good year!
