It’s here. Jack’s first day of elementary school…
Jack will be taking the bus to school two days a week and going to before/aftercare the other three days, so he won’t actually ride the bus for the first time until Friday. Today, I walked him into his before care at the school and signed him in. The assistant director greeted Jack and showed him where to store his backpack until school starts.
I started to lead Jack to an activity table, but he immediately brushed me off and told me to get going to work. I did get a kiss and a hug before he shoved me on my way. I glanced back as I reached the door and saw Jack plop himself down at a table with a similar sized kid, introduce himself and start playing.
Yup, he’s ready.
