First Day of School 2012

So it came.  I talked about my anxiety and my excitement about today here and here.  Grade One and the first day of school have obviously been on my mind A LOT.

We crammed everything that we could in on the weekend.  It was one of the busiest of the summer and the kids were elated.  Friends, fun, camp-outs, ice cream at the park, walks, talks, play.  Everything.  We wanted to go out with a BANG and we did.

And then this morning, it was here.  It gave us a taste of our new life as we got up early and were on the go, go go right away.

Her excitement changed to nervousness as the morning progressed, but meeting the SUPER sweet teacher and finding out one of Jaia’s best chums will be in her class seemed to make her feel a little better.  A little.  She still looked terrified.

As I sit here typing in between twiddling my fingers, waiting for 3:45, I feel nervous.  It is my nature to worry.  Dan, on the other hand is 100% confident that she is having a wonderful time.  And I know he’s right.  I need to get confirmation from her to relax a little, but she will do great.  She will.  She always does.

I have a feeling that day 2 is going to be WAY better.  For both of us.

**Old friends, new school.  PERFECT combination!**

**Have you ever seen anything cuter…ever?**

And off we go………..Wish us luck!
