First Day x Two
Fun day at our house! Both kids got to go to their first day of school today. Our schedule is going to work out so nicely - Stomper goes every day at 8:25, and Bitty's class, twice a week, is at 9:00, done at 11:00, then Stomper's done at 11:30. Guess who got some free time today? That's right! I enjoyed that very much. I totally expected myself to be a crier. Even thinking about kindergarten used to make me feel a little sad. However I remained callousedly tearless for both drop offs. I guess I'm just heartless. That, or actually excited for my kids and their new adventures. Not to mention a little free time twice a week. I'm not crying about that!
Both kids seemed to love their teacher, school and class. Bitty did have a bit of a glazed look in her eye - her picture with her teacher is so similar to Stomper's on his first day of preschool (with the same teacher) that it kind of makes me laugh. Bitty spent the entire drive to her school in raptures. "Miss Pattie loves me. And I love her..." over and over again. Pretty cute.
Here's Stomper on his first day of Preschool two years ago. I just love that almost-smiling, not-so-sure-about-things, wide-eyed look.
