Today was the first day of school for not only Jack, but Will today. He had his first day of preschool’, such a milestone day.
First stop was our bus stop, where Jack was a bit apprehensive about his splint and sling. All of his friends welcomed him to the bus stop and he was in the swing of things quickly. Thank goodness it is warm this week and he can wear short-sleeved shirts. We can’t get the splint into a long sleeve, grrr.
We jetted off from the bus stop to Will’s drop off. As we waited in the lineup he kept asking to go inside. When it was his turn to get out he jumped out of the car and practically ran inside, hardly saying goodbye. Quite a difference from Jack’s first day at preschool where he walked in crying.
As I drove away I got a bit sad, because this is a big step for both of us. Do get me wrong I am very excited for him, I just realized again that he is growing up.
When I picked him up he said he had a good day, working on puzzles, reading books, eating snack and playing at recess. He is excited to go back on Thursday and even asked me when he could stay for lunch.
How was your first day of school?
