I had a request from Destini to post a blog about Caty’s first day of Kindergarten before I tackle the multiple Maui posts. So here you go…
We now have a Kindergartner on our hands. I can’t quite say the school year has started off as we would have liked it. Most you you know, but Friday, the 6th, Caitlyn got a hairline fracture in her foot. We had gone over to the Fountains in Roseville to enjoy their street fair – can’t quite say it was very enjoyable. A few minutes after getting there Caitlyn wanted to go through the Bounce House. It wasn’t just one of the square ones, this had obstacles and a slide at the end. Well, coming down the slide, on her tummy and feet first, she turned around to look at me and by doing that her whole body turned and her foot hit the side. She started crying saying that her foot hurt. She couldn’t put pressure on it, but it wasn’t obviously broken or turning funny colors. So we headed home and put some ice on it. When she woke up Saturday morning, she still couldn’t put pressure on it, so into Kaiser we went. X-rays proved that there was a hairline fracture. Into a half cast she went.
Now onto Tuesday…. the first day of school. We arrived, with Scott’s help. He carried her into class and we got her situated and left. She was as happy as can be. There are 8 of her friends from her Preschool class in her Kinder class – such a huge help. One of the main reasons we put in for a district transfer was because we wanted her to continue of with kids she knew and were already accepting of her.
11:25 came, rather quickly, and there we were, back at school to pick her up. We didn’t know what to expect, but there, walking, ok hobbling, with her class, was Caty. We were in total disbelief but so happy that she was walking and not having to be carried. She hadn’t tried walking or anything since Friday. Sure shows how strong and independent she is!!
She’s absolutely loving Kindergarten as we knew she would!
Ready for school!
