I couldn't relax last night - I just kept thinking about what tomorrow would bring,
I was the only one who seemed phased by it.
But this morning, as Noah was getting ready he kept giggling and telling me he felt "kinda weird and tingley." I explained to him that was called having butterflies in your stomach. He smiled at me and said, "It feels more like caterpillars."
Although Noah thoroughly enjoyed Kindergarten he hasn't been thrilled at the idea of going to school for 6 1/2 hours.
This morning he told me he was excited : )
He must have been, because as we were walking out the door I asked if I could take his picture -and he smiled and said yes.
I was glad to see most of the other moms out there with their kids on the first day of school - cuz I wanted to be there too.
We found his class line, he recognized a few friends, and smiled sweetly for the camera.
(Too bad the woman who took this picture doesn't know how to take a picture, but whatever)
That's Noah's teacher Mrs. Hansen, at the front of the line on the right.
The bell rang and he was walking through the doors, not to be seen by me again until 3:35pm.
And all the things I forgot to remind him of ran through my head and I had a little moment of panic.
And I surprised even myself by breaking down and crying.
Am I going to do this every year??
I hope you have a great year of 1st Grade Noah!
Me and your sisters miss you : )
