Breathing deeply, blinking a lot. Smiling bigger. Gahhhhhhh the day is here: Kindergarten.
Ben & I joined millions of other parents from around the world this fall as we said good by to our oldest child entering his first year of school. We made it.
He woke up and came out wearing just his back pack and with a sleepy smile murmured, “I’m ready to go to kindergarten.” We responded, “…umm.. .Better get dressed first!”
“Stop taking my picture!” he said so much like a 6-year-old boy.
“I don’t need to hold your hand!” Ben’s hand stayed close.
…and when we left, hands sweaty, our child in his new school and got in the car- we realized how sad Bug was. He’s going to miss his brother this year!
