School started today.

The girls were so excited, bounding out of bed without any moans or groans
(I know it won’t last, but I’m enjoying it while it does)

Warm biscuits for breakfast, chased down with some chocolate milk, and we were out the door.

Well, after a little photo session, that is.

They wanted me to walk them in to their classrooms. I was only to happy to do so… glad they still want me to be a part of that part of their first day. 

BUT

Once inside the halls of school, they walked ahead of me, chatting and laughing with their friends. I was just the pack-horse-mom carrying the 85 tons of school supplies to their classroom.

Still, it was fun to watch them happily reconnect with their friends. I’m so glad they like their school and feel at home there.

I can’t wait to pick them up this afternoon and hear all about the day.

Of course, I know I’m going to get extremely detailed answers to my query of  “How was your day?”

Things like “good” and “great” or even “okay”

and that will be it.

sigh.

I’ll have to fill in the blanks in my imagination.

I love parenting.

  1. Wow! Schooltime again already! Kids here in NC start back in a couple of weeks. The summer has really flown. Yes, enjoy the bounding out of bed while it lasts. I’ll be lucky if my 10-year-old son bounds out of bed on just one day!
    I’m visiting via Blog Connect–clicked on the link you left. I’ll enjoy coming back and getting to know you better. It’s always good to meet another GRITS (Girl Raised in the South!).
