Today is Willow’s first full day of Kindergarten. Her first full day going alone. Right at this moment, 8:21 am, she should be sitting on the bus, making her way to school. There are some other kids that live in our apartment building/complex that she knows, and who are a year or few older than she, so she can follow their lead. I just hope she doesn’t freak out and start to panic. I think she’ll be alright though.
I’m probably more worried than she is. This is such a big day for her. I thought about taking the morning off, or at least come in an hour late or something, but I figured it would probably be best if we made the day as normal and routine as possible. I’ll call Lindsey in a little while and see how she did. I’m not too worried about Willow catching the bus after school; I’m sure they’ll have teachers out there to help the new kids. We’ve tried to make sure that Willow understands that if she gets lost or scared, that she can ask a teacher for help.
Once she gets used to it, time will fly by, and next thing we know, Ari will be going off to Kindergarten. Then we’ll have graduations. And college.
