kindergarten, here we come

Damian starts school the day after tomorrow. Tomorrow morning we go to a one hour assembly to meet the teachers, administrators, other kindergarteners and their parents. This is real, this is here, this is now. I feel oddly calm. No, excited. Anxiety has transmuted to pride. My little guy in elementary school. A mainstream, regular elementary school classroom, and he's just one of the kids. I'm sure there'll be bumps and bobbles, but for now it's all idealized in my head; the vice principal tells me all the kindergarten teachers are great and I have the freedom to believe him. It's all fresh and new and full of promise. I'm not scared anymore.

This is so cool.

Happy First Day of School to Damian! Tell us all about the assembly today...and then lots and lots of details (and first-day pictures) are expected tomorrow!

P.S. Remember, it's OK to cry on the first day. I mean you, not Damian. Damian can cry whenever he wants. ;-)

Congratulations to you and Damian. I really hope everything goes extra-well and this turns out to be the best school there is.
