To tell you that the kiddos started school yesterday!
Beaver's kindergarten does this nice phase-in period, so he only goes to school for two hours Monday and Tuesday, three hours Wednesday and Thursday, and doesn't have school on Friday. It's a good phase-in for parents, too. I couldn't be sad about sending him off to school on Monday, because two hours is nothing. That's only half the time he spent at preschool. And by next Monday, when the full day begins, I can't be sad because he'll already have been going to school for a whole week and it's silly to cry about the second week of kindergarten. Yesterday I rode the bus to school with him, but today I just sent him off without me. That was a little heart-wrenching, but Bear was on the bus, so not really. He was hesitant to leave me yesterday, but I knew he would be fine once he got through the gate, and he was.
Have a great year, little one!
