I really do feel like I was just posting last year's first day of school pictures! Unbelievable. Rowan is in the older preschool class this year, and Fletcher is now in kindergarten (*sniff*). It's been a strange few days not having him around for most of the day, and I just constantly wonder at how he's faring at school. He told me on the first day that he was worried about school. When I asked him for more specifics, he told me, "Well, I'm just a worrier." I explained that it's the mama's job to worry, not the boy's job. But he's wired in a similar way, so it's probably in his DNA to worry. Rowan was just excited, and ran into school happily when we got there. Fletcher had some tears for the first time on a first day. And it broke my heart. Made me nearly vow to homeschool him on the spot. But then reason got the best of me, and so I kissed him, told him he'd have a great day, and walked away from him with my own tears.
And as for me, I've been slowly working on adding new things to my shop, so now that I have a little more time, I'll focus on that! Hope all you mamas and your kiddos out there had a positive first day of school.
