First day of school.

Yesterday was the first day of school for my kids. My son was excited to finally walk with his big sister to the "big" school and not the baby one (preschool). They wanted cinnamon rolls for breakfast so I made them in the morning. Not really a good breakfast but it was a special day. They loved that!

Then it was the traditional pose in front of our porch and off to school we went! They held hands until they were around the corner. We met up with some friends and we all went to kinder.

Then I dropped my daughter at the designated class line and snapped a quick photo of her teacher. We then walked to her class and just like that, I had a second grader. sniff. I didn't cry or get teary eyed when I left my son at class.  I'm pretty proud of myself. Also helps if I don't think too much into it or dwell on the fact my baby is now a big boy.

When it was time for being picked up, he came running toward me (the backpacks were against the gates) and told me he had a great day. He also had a sticker at his temple because he has "a lot of smarts!" lol

After having lunch at home and playing a bit, we went to pick up my daughter from class. Miss Thing walked and talked and said it was a boring day because they did preschool stuff (writing letters and simple math). I told her just wait until you have work then we'll see how easy it is. Smarty pants child!

If your child has started, how was their first day? Good? Bad? Boring? lol

A Bientot!

Good Morning. I am wondering if the school is walking distance from your home? That would be great. I am driving my kids to a school that is 45 minutes from our home! My kids are in 9th, 6th and K and one in preK. The 9th is why we are driving so far, since the high school here is not so great. They are loving it and I am so glad your little cuties had a great first day. I am gonna have to read and catch up on you guys since I have been gone for a while. Hope you are doing well. Have a great weekend!
