Back to School 2016
After we went to see Ryan's classes, I thought we'd stop by Evan's NEW school too.
Unfortunately, they were prepping for the meet-the-teacher night on the day before school started so... we had to wait.

This boy! I am so proud of him! He wasn't really nervous at all for going to a new school. I asked Evan if I could take him to school on his first day and he basically told me that I couldn't. He told me I could drop him off and drive away. Well, I wasn't really too okay with that. So, I told him I would drive him up the first day and just walk him to his line. As we exited the car, he told me that I had to say goodbye at the fence and let him go. I just walked with him a little bit farther. I helped him find his line, not that he really needed that kind of help and waited until some more kids showed up. Finally I gave him a hug and said goodbye. The way we drop off at this school makes it so I can't really see where he goes after I drop him off. It's hard, for me, but he handles it all so well.
Just one more story about Evan that I have to tell. So I ask him if he's making any new friends at school and he tells me that the coolest girl in his class sits right next to him. The more he starts telling me about her, I realize that this is a child with a disability. She's severely vision impaired and requires special equipment to see to learn inside the classroom. I just love that Evan, at the age of eight, can still have such an open heart to like a child regardless of a disability, skin color, or gender. It's amazing how much these two boys make me so proud.
Evan is all smiles after his first day!
