School Days, School Days
Two boys all ready for the first day of school... T is in first grade and going to all-day school for the first time (taking a lunch and everything.) R is in third grade and in "upper hall" for the first time. I took the morning off to take them to school on the first day. R said, "See ya later mom, I can do this on my own" and took off towards upper hall. My heart broke a tiny bit knowing that he's so big and doesn't need me as much as he used to. I asked T if he wanted me to walk him to his class room or did he want to go by himself. "You can take me there and hold my hand too, it's crowded in here." My heart soared --- yay, I still have one that needs his mommy! I have a feeling that next year, both boys will proudly and bravely walk to their classrooms without me. I guess it's just another step towards their independence, of which there will be many in their lives.
