All went well (or so I thought) until Rochelle's teacher phoned a little after two to tell me Rochelle had made the bus; Rebecca hadn't and couldn't be found. Rebecca had forgotten to give her teacher my note about the bus, the teacher hadn't given her the extra time she needed to catch it, and then she was a little lost homing in on the bus area. Rochelle has ridden lots of school buses, Rebecca never.
The teacher said she'd find Rebecca and bring her home. I headed over to the neighborhood school to pick up Rochelle. I didn't want her walking home alone; especially upset.
She'd been crying on the bus. None of it was anyone's fault. The teacher drove Rebecca and in the meantime had told the other teacher what Rebecca should have. An aide will escort her at least for the next few days until she's used to the schedule.
Tomorrow will be smoother.
She's getting off to a good start otherwise. Working hard on her math. The math intervention class may be her salvation.
Thanks to all for the comments. There is a highly scientific meme, a pic of Elcie and cat, and another post below this one.
Take care everyone.
