Upon meeting the teacher today, I did not get a warm and fuzzy feeling. First impressions are often misleading, so I'm trying to keep my anxiety in check. Henry liked the room well enough. Many of of his favorite toys and activities were on display. I liked that too. Everything seemed very age appropriate. I did count 21 nameplates on two small rectangular tables. I'm not sure I like that. When I toured, the principal said that they kept the class to 15 or 16 students. There is an assistant teacher in the room all day, so the ratio is not too bad. The table set-up just seemed cramped.

It's just that he's my baby boy and I'm going to be leaving him in a strange place with strangers everyday for almost nine hours. He has to bring two snacks, a lunch, wear a uniform, take PE and find the bathroom down the hall. All by himself. Oh, here come the tears again...
