There were no tears at drop-off -- for me or for them. There was no excitement at pick-up, mostly just a mix of "Mommy, can we go to Abby and Maya's house?" and "Mommy, I didn't get to finish my peanut butter crackers!"
I'm thrilled the day was so uneventful. And, as I said before, I'm excited for the boys' growth this year. I think Miss Michelle will be just what they need. (Now, if only we can keep the confusion about Michelle the nanny and Miss Michelle the teacher to a minimum!)
|As usual, my two can barely contain their excitement.|
|For comparison, here they are on last year's first day of school. Look how much more babyish they seem here.|
|Here they are after school let out. See? No tears! And this was Maya and Abby's first day of school EVER. Impressive!|
|It was also the first day of school for my big boy nephew Russy, who is in the FIRST GRADE. Lord. Look how big! I can't stand it.|
|And it was the first day for Kadija's kids, too! Kalonji is 12 and in the 7th grade. Alahna is 7 in the2nd grade; Aminah is 8 in the 3rd grade and Kwahli is 5 in kindergarten. I remember when all of them were teeny babies. Time goes so quickly.|
Have a great year of learning and fun! We love you!
