Another one leaves the nest...well for part of the day.

Today was the first day of school for Little and Littlest March. It has been an odd few days gearing up for it. Little March is worried about not having "snack" anymore during the day, and who she will play with at recess.

Littlest March begins Kindergarten. He will go "full day" and ride the big bus with his sister. Littlest this past spring went to school 5 days a week but it was 1/2 days and then he'd get bussed back to daycare. He has been having a hard few days trying to get the idea of school and being there all day. He keeps asking "when do I get to daycare to eat?" No buddy you eat AT school. He will show a little concern, and ask when he will get to daycare again 10 minutes later. Both our kids went to the same woman for daycare. Last Friday was the last day we'd see here (on a regular basis) and for the first time in EIGHT years. Its crazy! My kids really loved her (as did we) so it was hard to close that chapter on our lives.

Today they shuffled to the bus stop. Oversized, yet empty backpacks and their minds racing. Of course the bus was late (first day and all) so Littlest March got bored and seemed to drift off here and there. His favorite saying as of late (for anything) "This is taking for-ever!!".

The bus arrived and his big sister took his hand and lead him over. They climbed on and I *think* they both waved.

I am not too worried about today but later this week the rigors may catch up with Littlest March.

I am sure he will be "fine" but I'd feel like and even worse parent if I was not even just a little nervous/worried.

Sounds like Littlest has his priorities straight...when do we eat?
