First Day of (Back to) School

Boys did GREAT this morning in getting up, getting showered, dressed and ready (hope THAT holds).

Salamander walked to the bus stop and, once the bus got there, got on without as much as a backward glance. Once on the bus, he walked straight to the back (he's a 5th grader now, so can now take *prime seating* at the back of the bus), plopped down and started chatting with his class mates.. with nary a look out the window to check if we were watching him. Part of me is immensely proud, as obviously he's getting to an age that you absolutely should be ignoring your family for your friends. But part of me was a little sad as obviously my guy is growing up....

Potatey has his Kindergarten orientation from 11 am till 12.30 pm today, and right now, he's in *all dressed and no where to go* mode. He's excited and he's anxious, and he just wants the waiting to be over... I know he'll transition just great, after all he's my *oozing confidence, ready to tackle anything* kiddo....

More on how the actual first day went later...

Congratulations on Salamander's successful morning!! That is so awesome! I look forward to hearing how Potatey does.

Awesome that he did so well! I have no doubt that Potatey will do just as well.

Hoping all continues to go positively in the right line and that you get some much needed rest!

Thank you both!! Potatey did good.. half the school personnel already knows who he is (and I am only partly to blame for that fact.. LOL). The school nurse and one of his teachers fell heads over heals for him ... And by his own words, school is "AWESOME". Let's hope THAT holds too.

Salamander is about to get home from the bus, am anxious (?) to hear how his day went.

Now once I survive getting BOTH kids on the school bus tomorrow and getting them to their proper destinations, then we will be *on our way*..
