We made it!
The first full week of school is over and we're all still in one piece. Vicki, of course, jumped right back into the swing of things and didn't really need any time to get used to things, but Lexi never went to preschool, so this is her first plunge into the life of a student, and going from no school whatsoever to all day long is a pretty big step. She did it, though, and appears to have loved every second of it. Every day after school she bounced over to me to drop off her backpack before running off to the playground to play before we headed home. And then she walked the half mile home without any complaints. There weren't even any of the major meltdowns I was expecting. She did lose it a bit at bedtime last night, but she crashed the minute her head hit the pillow and has been extremely cheerful all day today. So I think (hope, pray, knock on wood) that the worst is over and she'll just keep on having fun. Besides, it's kindergarten...what's not to love? :)
