And she's off to kindergarten!

Belle started Kindergarten today. She's in the class of 2023!
Yesterday we had her orientation and a trial run on the bus, where I got to ride along with her. She was very unsure about the bus but also quite excited to go meet her new teacher and make friends.

After talking to friends, her doctor, the teacher, principal and comments received both here on the blog and on the facebook page - I decided to start the year with her not patching at school. We'll get in her hours after school when she gets home and go from there.  At some point we may start patching at school and when we get to that point we'll come up with a plan. But first, she needs to adjust to all the changes that come with going to Kindergarten.

Good luck to all the kids going back to school. What have you/your schools done to assist your child with amblyopia?  If you patch at school - I'd love to hear how its going for you!
