I'm very grateful that neither of them has first day anxiety. Perhaps they were a bit anxious, aren't most kids on the first day? I remember being so anxious the night before the first day of school that I could hardly sleep. I'd just lay there fruitlessly trying to will myself to sleep.
I'm really glad that they are getting the public school experience; although my mother does not agree. The only public institution I attended was college. Am I crazy that I got excited this morning when I walked into the cafeteria to buy their meal tickets for the week? I loved seeing the cafeteria counter and cash register - it felt totally new to me, that scene was something I only saw on TV or in movies.
The kids, along with their cousin, have the same lunch hour so they got to see each other in the cafeteria. Even though they couldn't sit together because they are all in different grades, I'm glad that they can at least see each other and take a little comfort knowing they are all in there at the same time.
They both had a great day. And that's what matters.
Hello. My name is Awesome.
