First Day of First Grade for My First
No identification card or bus details pinned to his shirt, no tears at the bus stop, no special orientation for parents or kids this year… my 6-year-old dove into First Grade full speed ahead and he couldn’t be more thrilled.
“First Grade is WAY better than Kindergarten,” he says. I asked why, he said “there’s more.”
“More what?” I asked.
He replied, “More of everything!” followed by “I thought I was going to miss you but I don’t AT ALL!!!!” [Gulp, moment of sadness quickly followed by relief that we’re having a great start to his first year of full days at school.]
