Today was the first day of kindergarten. A major life event for my boy…. starting school. Sadness for me. Five years we’ve spent together, hardly ever being apart.
I can’t think of a better way to start the day than running off some energy in the school playground.
But then it was time for the children to enter the classroom and separate from the parents. My son is lucky. His favorite swimming pool friend is in his class. They entered the classroom together, hand-in-hand, giving each other support…
I’m so proud of him. He was excited, but a bit nervous. Natural emotions for entering the unknown. He only cried for a minute when he hugged me goodbye. I held back my tears until I got home.
