OK... so I whined about "when is school going to start" ALLLLLL summer long... and guess who was sad when it finally did? Yup.... me.... first grade is just SOOOOOO different than kindergarten. There is no little rug to go sit on.... no cute reading areas... no little cubbies. Now they have their own little desk (Mason totally digs this) and their own school supplies (ditto). So Mason says, "OK Mom... you can go now. Love you." Oh man.... where did my nervous little guy go? I am so glad he enjoys it and loves being independent... I guess it is always hard to watch them take the next steps in their young lives. I am such a wimp!
