Getting on the bus!! :) We are blessed to have the bus-stop be our house! Gracie had a pretty good first day. She told me she cried 2 times, once when her pants were too tight and the nurse came and put some ointment on her hip, then she cried at recess when she couldn't find her teacher, Mrs Schaefer. Mrs. Schaefer has been really sweet to us since hearing about Gracie last year. So we were beyond excited that she got her for a teacher! I talked with her on the phone later and she told me the same thing Gracie had, and that she did well the rest of the time! I was so glad and relieved to hear she had a good day. She seemed so much bigger to me when she got home and was telling me all about her day. WE are SO proud of her. Kindergarten is such a big milestone for anyone, but especially for her! We feel so blessed.

I met with the principal last week to discuss Gracie and her needs and she was super nice and said they will help in any way she needs. I have a letter from Dr Granger stating her condition and her diabetes insipidus. So it basically just says that Gracie needs to be able to get a drink, use the bathroom, get pain medicine, and take a rest at any time she needs. The principal gave the letter to all the teachers Gracie has with home room, art, PE, and music, so they are all aware and informed. Gracie brought a blanket and pillow to leave at school in the nurses office if she needs a rest. Yesterday was Gracie's first day of Kindergarten! She was excited to go and she packed her lunch and went to wait for the bus with Chloe. Im glad they are at the same school.
