First Grade

School started today. It is the first day of first grade.
My little girl is off to school again. I know I sent her off to Kindergarten last year and she has already taken the bus. But it still seems different. Maybe it was the apprehension of getting on the bus with a different driver from last year. Maybe it was that she didn’t want to get on the bus either. Maybe it’s the new “big girl” hair cut or the school uniform. Maybe the idea that she has to take lunch money this year or that the back pack no longer has fairies and princesses but now has a teen idol plastered on the front. What ever it is I think today will be a very long day.

She should be on the way home if not home already to tell you how her "big" day went.

I hope it went well after the awkward start.

OM 1st GRADE!!! Man time flies, no more fairies. I'm a little sad at that doesn't it last a little longer? ;(

Man I need to prepare for next Tuesday!

Oh, I know what you're feeling. I cried every single year and I even cried after every single vacation. Maybe I'm not the right person to be commenting on this. ;)
