Well, this year was a big one. All my boys are in school. Oldest is in fifth grade, Middle is in third grade (both are now on the “big” side of elementary school) and Youngest started his first day of kindergarten.
There were some nerves when we got there. Which I honestly wasn’t expecting. He’s been so excited for 2 years now counting down and waiting for his turn to go to school too.
One little girl was bawling, but what would kindergarten be like if someone didn’t cry? She was a bit more pulled together by the time everyone got to class.
Youngest walked in line to his class showed us his spot and then gave me a huge bear hug. We waited for him to adjust for a minute talking about all his new friends and taking silly pictures. He finally smiled and was ready for us to leave. He knows the drill, he’ll be fine.
Dad and I came home and he went down to sleep (he worked last night and works again tonight). I did dishes, started laundry, ate breakfast and then sat down to read a book. I think a nap might be in order later, I didn’t get much sleep last night.
It’s going to be a good day, and by next week it’ll be routine to drop them all off together. But today, it was a big deal.
