First Day of School




"It's my first day at school, and I'm a little scared, there's a lot to do, but I'm prepared, to brush my teeth and comb my hair, get in my seat, mom takes me there. Gonna wave bye bye, go through the door, learn a little somethin' that I never knew before..." The Imagination Movers, First Day of School

As I dropped both kids off at school today, this song by the Imagination Movers popped in my head. Here I was, dropping my two babies off at school for the first time. Both of them.

Jack was so proud to have his sister there. He took her to his classroom and showed her all around. Then, he introduced her to his teachers and they both shook hands with her. Next, Jack took Eva to her classroom (his old one) and he signed her in. It was too adorable for words.

How did I do? Well, after I literally hid in the bushes for a few minutes watching Jack in the classroom, I went on my way downtown to work...alone.

Sniff, sniff, sob, sob.

Thanks for the kudos on the blog. There is a link in the corner with the most awful name of a company but I went to their website last night and just chose one! Free!! Would love to have someone really design a nice one for me but for now, this will do!

Just needed to switch it up. Was tired of the pink.

Having been a teacher, there is something about "the first day of school" for faculty and students alike, that you don't experience in any other profession. Whether it is the first "first day" or simply the beginning of a new school for returnees after the ennui of a summer hiatus, I still remember with great fondness the joy and excitement that comes with the "first day of school."

Julianna starts kindergarten on Tuesday, and I can't wait. I am a little bummed that is is only 8:30-3 which means she will be home 90-120 minutes earlier than she was coming home when I was paying for pre-school. Yikes. What am I going to do with her for all that extra time? I hope I don't have to spend all that time in time out so she doesn't bug me to death with questions.

Love the new site. And free is always the best!
