Organized chaos, that was the best way to describe their house on a typical day, but this wasn't a typical day in the Reid-Morgan household. It was Savanna's first day of kindergarten and she was so excited she could hardly stand still. Her father's were struggling with the fact that their baby girl was growing up so fast.
"C'mon Daddy, Papa, hurry! I wanna get to school."
"Be patient, kiddo. We're almost ready," Derek called to his daughter. While he was talking to his oldest daughter he grabbed his youngest one by the hand and stopped her from running after her twin brother.
"What's up, DJ?"
"Nate tooked my hair clip and won't give it back," she informed him.
"Nate! Give your sister her hair clip back."
"Yes, Papa," called the little boy handing the clip back to his sister. Just then he heard happy squeals coming from the babies room.
"Spence, how's it going?"
"Good, Jason's almost ready, how's it going down their?"
"Good, Vanna's gettin' impatient," Derek chuckled.
"Okay, we're ready," Spencer said descending the stairs their youngest child in his arms. Five minutes later the family was in the SUV heading for Conley Elementary. -
"But Daddy, I don't wanna go in, I'm scared," Savanna said crying as she clung to Spencer's leg.
"Honey, it's okay, I'm sure you'll enjoy school," he soothed.
"You and Papa won't be here, though," she sniffled.
"No, but we'll be back to pick you up at 3:00, sweetheart. Gently he pried his little girl off his leg and gently pushed her towards her classroom.
"Daddy, noo!" she cried. Morgan moved forward giving it a try.
"You'll make lots of new friends and learn lots of fun stuff at school, I promise. I know you'll have fun," he promised her. Her sobbs had subsided some but Savanna was still crying. JJ gave them a sympathetic look as she walked out of Henry's kindergarten class her youngest child Lisa in tow. Just then Jack walked up to the little group.
"Mind if I try, Uncle Derek, Uncle Spencer?"
"Be my guest," Spencer offered. Nodding Jack nelt down in front of the little girl and took her hands.
"Hey there, 'Lady Bug'," he greeted. No one could quite recall when the nickname had started but Jack was the only one who could get away with calling her that.
"Hey, J-j-jack," she greeted.
"What's the matter, Lady Bug?" he asked gently.
"I'm scared, what if nobody likes me and what if I don't know any of the answers?" she whispered.
"I'm sure you'll make friends. Everyone will like you, what's not to like your a great girl. As for knowing all the right answers, no one does, but as long as you do your best, you'll do fine.
"But I'm all by myself, I don't know anyone in my class. Henry's in the other class. I don't have anyone here to help me."
"Yes you do," Jack answered.
"I do?" she questioned.
"Yes, of course you do. I'll be right down the hall in Mrs Nash's third grade class. Just come and get me if you need me, no matter what. I'm always here for you Savanna," he said seriously.
"Thank you Jack!" she cried throwing her arms around her very best friend. Despite their age difference they had always been close ever since Savanna was a baby.
"You ready to go meet your teacher now, baby girl?" Morgan questioned. Savanna bobbed her head excitedly.
"Let's go then," he said as he took her hand and walked her into the classroom the rest of the family behind them, mouthing a quick thank you to Jack as he walked by him. He knew his little girl would be just fine with Jack Hotchner watching out for her.
