Today, we were in the drop off line of cars (about the fourth back) and Esen decided that "Mama, you should probably walk me in, today." I pulled out of the line, parked and we walked up to the drop off door where the outside TA was waiting to shuttle kids into the Gym. We started talking to her about the process so he'd be ready for next week. I had my camera in hand so I could get some pictures of him in front of school and walking off into school. Then, his buddy arrived and they RAN OFF into school together. No tearful goodbye, no pictures, nothing. I guess I have to be happy that he's well adjusted and confident, right?
His first day went really well. He was happy and exhausted! I absolutely cannot believe he is off to school already. It really doesn't seem possible.
