School update

School seems to be agreeing with Allen a little bit more this week. On Tuesday I dropped Allen off at he front door, and the director took him inside. Per Allen's request, I asked that his teacher be told that he was scared of the kids (this was an unsolicited/unassisted comment by him). When I picked him up, though, he said he had a great time.

Yesterday went even better. For whatever reason, there was no one to walk him into his class, so I had to do so. But we got there without much incident. He did insist on bringing his chocolate milk in, but binky was left in the car, and after a brief request for it and look of panic, he wandered in to show Ms. Avril that he learned how to say, "I Love You" in sign language (courtesy of the book, The Kissing Hand).

Today was awesome. Again, I had to walk him all the way to class, but as I was hanging up his sweatshirt, he started to walk away and towards his class by himself. I had to call him back for a kiss goodbye.

Here are a couple pictures from school this week (no action shots, just his first painting and his folder).
Next week, we are going on our first field trip ... to see Alice in Wonderland at the USC Beaufort Performing Arts Center! I've volunteered to be a driver, so hopefully I'll get to go with him!

What a great update for all of you! Allen is going to love school, his friends and his teachers and they will love him right back!
Have a great weekend!

I'm happy to hear he is adjusting. I'm a little jealous that you get to go on a field trip...take some pictures to post...a group of little kids on a field trip is sure to be an adventure!

What a great painting - I can see some serious talent there! Have fun on your field trip - I used to love going with the kids to Longwood Gardens or the Franklin Institute. The kids never cared much, but what fun for me :)
Lots of Love
