Ya think it would get easier. But each year they keep getting OLDER. The nerve of these kids. They were all really excited for the first day of school. Will is now in third grade. Which mean he heads upstairs at the school. I asked him if he wanted to walk down the hall with us and then circle back. He said "no I am ok. I just go up." Yes...but I am not ok! Luke and Rachel love their teachers so they skipped in their classrooms as well. Which is of course much better than peeling them off of me.
Seeing them go is always so bitter sweet. Hard to say goodbye to the refreshing days of summer. When bedtimes and wake up times are flexible. Where our schedule is way more laid back. But I also do love to watch them grow. I am so proud of the little people they are becoming.
Luke said he "was awesomely good" all day. Rachel was the princess who a group of children were trying to save on the playground. Will brought home his book bag, folder, and his lunch box. So I declare day one a success.
