The kids had a wonderful first day of 1st grade. They woke up doing the "1st day of school dance" (then climbing in to bed with us for some precious pre-school snuggles). They marched right on to the bus and off they went. Just like that. Because they go to another elementary school (not our neighborhood school) for Spanish Immersion they had to switch buses on the way to school and on the way home. They followed directions and did great. They got off the bus this afternoon tired, but full of stories of their first day of school. They loved lunch at school, 2 recesses, Spanish class, speaking Spanish in class, seeing their friends, snack.....the list goes on and on.
I cried a little today and counted the moments until they got home. But then, I savored the snuggles, the smell of their hair, the stories, the excitement...the new chapter.
