Another roll of film delivered these images: Ethan's First Day of Kindergarten.
Sigh...that little face just tugs at my heartstrings.
There's something about being 5 and a half. Everything is so bright and exciting,
and, while there was a lot of anxiety (on both our parts!), he was very eager to go.
Demonstrating his newly acquired skill.
Meg was actually the one who finally taught him to tie his shoelaces.
Ready to go!!
Ethan, Javier, Angelina, and ?? . Not sure who the other girl might be.
Apparently, I felt the need to take a picture every three seconds.
Sorry about that, buddy!
Where is the bus, Mommy?
Fluffy the Bus Driver was Ethan's first experience with benign neglect.
She very much reminded me of this bus driver:
GOOD MORNING, CHILDREN.
Oh, boy. There he goes!!
At least my tears were all for Ethan that day.
Meghan would spend two more years with me at the preschool,
drawing me pictures, and taking Slippy every single special day.
Another roll of film features Slippy prominently, so we'll probably see more of her!
Just for comparison, here is a 1st day of school picture from this past fall. Gah!!
