"Tasha Had a Colony"

Tasha Had a Colony
Sung to the tune of "Mary Had a Little Lamb"

Tasha had a Colony
Colony
Colony
Tasha had a Colony
Who stayed at home for school

Zeke needed some therapy
therapy
therapy
Zeke needed some therapy
to help him with his school

They took him to the school one day
school one day
school one day
they took him to the school one day
and he thought it was cool

We didn't want him to feel alone
feel alone
feel alone
We didn't want him to feel alone
so Areyna will go there too.

Rainy wasn't so sure of it
sure of it
sure of it
Rainy wasn't so sure of it
but she began to feel pretty cool

They woke up for school today
school today
school today
They woke up for school today
but the principal forgot

but She took us all around the school
'round the school
'round the school
She took us all around the school
to see their teacher's and class

So the kids will start in the morning
the morning
the morning
the kids will start in the morning
and now we know where to go

*******************************************

Okay, so it doesn't all fit in the song, but my kids liked it, ha!

The first day of school turned into a full school tour and a meet-the-teacher morning.  The Principal apologized for "dropping the ball" and not getting everything prepared, but sure didn't want the kids to walk into a new environment without the teachers being able to prepare for them and making them feel welcome.

It's kind of thrown everybody off:)  Zeke was a little beside himself, as he'd been preparing to be brave ALL WEEKEND LONG and I'm pretty sure Cai was ready to take over the alpha-male role in Zeke's absence, ha!

Josh and I feel better after getting to look around, meet the teachers and some of the faculty, as well as get their track assignment (Track 1) and schedules.

We've all had mixed emotions all morning, but we know it will be good.  It WILL be good...and if it isn't, well, we tried.  You never know if something else could be BETTER unless you step out and try something new:)  (Hmmm, sound like something my mom would say;)
