Orientation for Erin

It went as I expected.  She wanted to stay and start school today.  She even asked her teacher if she could stay.  The girl was definitely in her element!

We went to the cafeteria to get her teacher assignment, and to let them know that she will be a car rider/bike rider. She found a few of her friends, and had a smoothie while she waited.

Then it was off to find her class.  We told her the room number and let her lead the way...

She found it, and she was so excited (She knows the school pretty well since she has two older brothers that attended here).  

She ran in, immediately walked over to her teacher and introduced herself (without either of us beside her).  After chatting with Mrs. Greene (she was Bren's teacher in 1st and 2nd grade) for a few minutes she was asked to go up to the board to answer a question, and her eyes lit up.  She promptly answered "YES".

We also met her math and reading teachers, and she found the desks for lots of her friends.  As we were leaving she saw one of her very best friends, and she took off running to her.  

She just had a great time, and really cannot wait for Monday to get here.  The excitement in her voice when she talks about school is wonderful.

It is great that she is so excited about school. She is so adorable, too. :) I bet she's a good student.

This will be my last year of high schooll--it starts tomorrow. I am not looking forward to it.

Oh my goodness my baby girl granddaughter is starting school. What wonderful pictures and comments you put on her blog. She is such a special little girl and is loved to very much.I imagine she will do as well as her Mom did and end up helping the teacher help the other students. Love you all and our precious Erin, Mom/Grandma & Grandpa Larry
