I feel like every year on the first day of school I want to say “I can’t believe we are here!” Aaron and I were up last night talking about the day we brought Edith home from the hospital. They handed her to me and I just stared at her, wondering what the future was going to hold for the both of us.
She walked into Kindergarten today with the biggest smile.For a few days before school she was saying she felt shy or she was nervous that she was going to fall and people would laugh at her (I have no idea where she got this!) but once she crossed the threshold this morning that all disappeared. We saw some of her friends from last year and she ran to give her new teacher a big hug. At one point in the classroom she looked at me and said, “Mom, when are you and Dad leaving? I want class to start!”. She’s always been so independent, so ready to take on new challenges and be on her own in this world.
I’m so proud of her and I can’t wait to see all that she’s going to learn this year. So for now I’m just sitting at home, staring at the clock, wiping away my own tears and waiting to pick her up and hear all about her first day.
How did the first day of school go for you guys?
