For 4 years he was in the Mabank school district. He went to two years of Head Start (speech/hearing problems) and then off to kindergarten and 1st grade. He was active in T-ball, after school care and summer day camp. He was constantly busy. He had friends, girls that flirted with him (trust me on this one) and was never bored. Now in our new town, friendships are harder to form, basketball doesn't start up until November but the girls still love him.
Hubs and I went to lunch with him yesterday at school and the girls were lining up. Too bad the boys weren't anywhere to be found. I worry that he won't fit in and make friends. He doesn't talk about school like he used to. I figured that he would be Chatty Cathy about school but now all he talks about is wanting to go back to Mabank to school and missing his friends. We have talked with him about making friends and such but no luck so far. At our church, we has plenty of friends but none of them go to his elementary school. Unfortunately, they go to the other one in town. *sigh*
I'm a stay at home mom for now because we figured that our son would need to adjust to school and everything that went with it. Now, we are kind of looking at this decision as a mistake. Maybe, I do need to go back to work so that he can be at an after school program. Right now, we don't need the added income but I'm sure that won't last.
So my question to you is...did you move your child(ren) and have the same problems? What solutions to you come up with?
