I had Megan and Joshua standing beside each other to get pictures taken to remember their first day at FLEC and Daniel came running over yelling, "me, too!".
We loaded up the mini-van and headed off into the sea of other mini-vans in the school parking lot. It was pretty chaotic, but we survived. After dropping two kids off, it was nice to grocery shop with only one.
Then Daniel colored some dinosaur pictures while I washed and chopped produce and did some bulk cooking for the week. Daniel sampled everything I chopped and managed to sneak away half of a green bell pepper. How could I be mad at him munching quietly away.
Before lunch, Daniel and Daddy played out in the driveway. Daniel does quite well on his tricycle.
Grandma and Grandpa came over for dinner tonight to hear all about every one's first day of school. The kids were tired, but they did great. Right after dinner an Edible Arrangement was delivered (thanks Grandma and Grandpa!) for the kids to enjoy.
It was a really fun day. It's kindof funny, so many people have asked me if I am sad that the kids are in school now. I think my feelings about Megan and Joshua being in school are feelings of excitement. I loved school. I can remember the name of every teacher I've ever had. (That's not an exaggeration...seriously, I can.) I remember field trips to the Stone Zoo and Topsfield's Fair and of course the Boston Museum of Science and the Aquarium. I loved school lunches and pizzas on Friday. I'm so excited that they get to experience all of this. I have to admit, that I will be completely disappointed if they don't absolutely love school as much as I did. And with three kids, there's a pretty good possibility that one or two just might think that creating a diorama out of a shoe box is pretty lame.
