A New Beginning

It’s that day in our neighborhood.  The day parents are supposed to look forward to with joyous anticipation.  I feel a little bittersweet about it this year.  This will be our first year that A will be in our local public school.  For kindergarten and first grade, we were part of a parent partnered public school program that provided classes part-time on campus, and parents taught part-time at home.  While E will be doing K in that program this year, for second grade we felt that our local school would be the best choice for A.  Although I am confident in the decision we made, it was hard for me to watch her go this morning.

Here she is, looking excited about heading off for school.

And off she goes:
