Rhys’s first day at rainbow 

The big day finally arrived this week! Rhys was going to start at Under the Rainbow. He always rushes into Ella’s classroom, as if he belonged there, sits down and starts playing with the toys there or play dough (I’ve seen a rainbow kid completely ignore him and actually sit ON him, and another kid yank him out of his seat).

His teachers told me right before class started that this week would be a settling in period, and I should pick him up at 10:45. I said fine, but deep inside I wanted to ditch him and go for a swim. I went for a swim anyway. While in the locker room changing back, I noticed the school had left a message. I called back and was asked if they could feed him biscuits and milk and that he was doing well and could stay until 11:30.

At 11:30 I showed up and collected him. Katrina said he was “just brilliant” and he could go all morning from now on.
