Day 2 of school, I am relieved to say, went very well for Rowan. He was still a little sad and confused at times, but I was told that he spent most of the day doing his work.

I decided to go to the school a little earlier today. This way I could sit in the observation booth, behind a one-way mirror, and watch Rowan go about his work. I am so glad that I did, because what I witnessed convinced me that Rowan is really settling into this new world of his. He got visibly sad a few times but was able to pull himself together and get back to the tasks at hand. He still seems unsure of himself in this strange place but I am sure that he will eventually reach a point where he can be his happy-go-lucky self again very soon.

His teachers are happy about the progress and seem positive that he will adjust within a couple of weeks.

There won't be any school tomorrow or Friday and I am sure we are going to enjoy just spending time together at home again. These last two days have been a challenge and we could use a bit of a break I think.

  2. An observation booth! What a great thing. It's so wonderful that you are able to watch him gain confidence in his new surroundings like that. What a relief that must be to you. That boy of yours is going to be just fine. He will love it.

  3. Glad to hear the second day went better - hope the two of you have fun these next 2 days!
