One of the hardest parts of the move, was the kids were really sad to leave their teachers, friends and schools. After awhile, we were able to get them excited about trying a new school and making new friends.
The school closest to our house had a full first grade, so Taysum gets bused to another school. In the morning, we drop him off at Westridge Elementary (the close school) and then he rides over to Desert View Elementary about 6-7 miles away. After school, he is bused right to our house, but he doesn't get home until about 4:30 or so. We've tried picking him up to save some time, but it doesn't save too much time and he has a great bus driver who he's really gotten attached to. He prefers the bus! :) He and Ken race everyday to see who gets home first! I was very impressed with how welcoming and accommodating DVE has been! They've been great to work with! We got him registered on a Friday afternoon, and by Monday morning, they had a meeting set up with the principal, his new teacher and a para for him! He loves it out there and seems to be doing pretty well!
