Here we go!
I know lots of moms are sad today, and I support their right to the sadness. But I’m good. Besides getting a nice regular routine back, this will be the first time in quite a while that we aren’t paying for regular childcare. I would make the standard jokes about it being like getting a raise, but we just started making payments on an orthodontic plan, so it’s more like just a relief.
First try at a picture.
Elias is a little nervous. I don’t know what Levi’s face is about.
Balancing their stuffed-to-the-gills backpacks on the way down the lane. I told them they’ll never be this heavy again. Until they start bringing rocks home again, I guess.
Thumbs out so the bus driver will see us.
And they’re off.
I think I recorded first-day conversations last year, and I decided to continue the tradition.
L: Mom, why do we have arms?
Me: So we can keep our hands with us all the time.
E: Why do we have to wear nice clothes and stay clean on the first day?
Me: I just like your teachers to know it’s possible.
