I always dreaded the first day of school. The first day of anything, actually. Still do, as a matter of fact! So my heart was breaking a little yesterday when Henry said, "Oh, I don't want to do this." It's so tough to send our little man off into the big world of public school. He didn't cry though. Mommy sure did, off and on all day. Just writing this, my throat's constricting and the screen's getting blurry through my tears.
I'm really proud of him for being tough and brave. It'll get better soon. For everyone.
Tim labeled these pictures "Proud kindergartener," "Independent kindergartener," and "Scared kindergartener." Mixed emotions. That about sums it up.
