First day of Kindergarten
It is a rite of passage, the first day of school. I have seen so many pictures lately of friends' kids going off to school. Cute outfit, new lunch box and backpack, big smile.
My son won't have that, but I hope to give him more. More sunshine, for starters. It was finally sunny after a month of rain. Seriously, a whole month of rain. My little kindergartner was livin' it up.
At the sand table durning centers? No, on the beach on the Turnagain arm.
Sitting quietly during a read aloud? Nope, taking a break on the coastal trail to admire the mountains and hear the story of the Sleeping Lady.
No limits to what he might learn out in the world.
I like that.
I am pretty sure he does too.
