It was the first day of school Tuesday. Our oldest boy started 3rd grade. Meanwhile our middle son, started Kindergarten. I’m sure he can remember the very first time his older brother hopped on the bus to go to school. Every day since then he has wanted nothing less than to start kindergarten. This was his day!
A quick hug with dad, no coaxing for a smile here. Is it bad that I didn’t cry for his first day of Kindergarten? I was so involved in his smile I think there was no room for my own emotions to filter in.
Just look at these kids. I can see confusion, irritability, irritation, coaxing, wonder, and complete apprehension…. but who is the ONLY kid wearing a grin?
Yup, I would say he’s a bit happy to be at school.
