The end of Kindergarten was not good for the Little Ballerina. She could not keep it together. Her behavior calendar was filled with quite a bit of yellow and red. Because of this, I've been dreading the return of school. Is she going to be able to pull herself together this year?
Over the past two weeks, she's moved from "Don't ever sign me up for school again!" to "I'm excited about going to first grade!" This is major. I am praying that this new found enthusiasm will last.
Tomorrow is the first day of school.
First day of school outfits have been laid out. Lunches have been planned. New school supplies are ready to go. We practiced LB's sight words. And the Big Ballerina read for 30 minutes before bed.
We are ready.
Or so I thought.
Until I pulled LB's new purple Chucks from their box tonight.
And discovered this...
Oh, Dear God! Are you SERIOUS?!? Is this a sign of things to come?!??! The Little Ballerina really CANNOT afford to start the school year off on the wrong foot!
