Megan and Gavin were both over the moon to start school today. On the way to Gavin’s classroom, he said, “Mom, I can handle it from here. You can go back to the car.” I told him I was going to walk him on his first day of kindergarten, but I would drop him off from now on.
Back to school pictures were (are–Ethan has one year left) a big deal in the Carroll house. I’m happy to carry on the tradition. I even cheated a little and took these last night, which I’m glad I did, because this morning was a whirlwind, even with my meticulous planning. This was the first school year I think we were truly prepared.
Now I’m home with Ben, he’s already down for a nap, and I think I’m going to curl up with Eat, Pray, Love and the Sunday paper. The cleaning and grocery shopping can wait until tomorrow!
