Lyle refused any traditional first day of school pictures this morning, so I had to sneak one from behind as he trooped into school. He was very excited to be going to his own school “Because I am such a big boy now!” and although he was shy with the teachers, he tried all sorts of activities and can’t wait to go back on Thursday. Thankfully, the staff reminded us a few times not to send the kids in nice clothes because they’ll get really messy; in fact, Lyle came home wet from the water table and covered with paint – two signs of a great time. For these first couple of weeks, we just go for short visits and I’ll be with him for the first three of these. It’s perfect for him. (Of course I’ll be celebrating my first day of freedom when it comes – perhaps not in the exact manner as this man, but it will be the same in spirit.)
That’s my boy!
