Austin had a party at school on Thursday 10/30/08 And I arranged with Jen (my brothers girlfriend) to have her watch the kids---THANKS JEN!! While I spent the whole day with Austin at his pre school class. It was fun to see him there and to see his little classmates and I was most curious about meeting his friend, Tristen. As I am sure you all know from my previous posts, Austin has a hard time with pre school. In fact, the only times he hasn't cried was his first day, and then the last 2 days (1 of them doesn't count, because I was there with him) (Wait! No, I am counting it!!!!) So He hasn''t cried 3 times out of 20. Every time I would ask him about his day, if he played with anyone, if he talked to anyone he would say, no. I always felt bad, that I never exposed him to more "outside" kids. We have so many kids in our family that he gets to play with, and doesn't really get the chance to play with neighbor kids, or my friends kids. So I told him if he talks to someone he likes to play with at school, then we will see if he/she can come over to play at our house one day. He was excited and liked that. So the following after picking him up from school days conversations went like this:
"Did you play with anyone today?"
"if you want to play with one of your friends from school at our house, you are going to have to talk to them at school first."
"Austin, did you talk to any friends today?"
"What's their name?"
"What did he say to you?"
"I said, I didn't know."
Austin got to walk in his very first costume parade. It was so cute, they walked through the older kids classes (kindergarten and first grade) and they all cheered the pre schoolers on, they were so proud! Austin's Grandma Green was able to come and see him, and he was so happy and excited to see her!! He was also a little embarrassed because he chose to bite his shirt instead of sing...(that was a first for me)
