When I picked Cal up at school yesterday he had a stack of paintings of home he'd done during the day. 'Oh dear', I thought to myself. 'I didn't realize he gets so homesick.' Back at home, he sat down and made a picture of school that included a smiling self-portrait, playing basketball. In the rain. I'm guessing he's just processing it all, getting used to being in kindergarten.
We do what we can to make the transition happen as smoothly as possible for all of us. Change is good, and change is also hard.
