Big girl is off to first grade this week. She as pretty happy to be going to the same school and seeing her pals again. I love her school- it feels like a real community and it gives me happy butterflies whenever I'm there.
The first few days were a little rough - I forgot just how knackered she would get after a full day if being "on" and one thing I know about her is transitioning from activity to activity is not something she likes and it wears her out. So we had a few days where it all fell apart, coupled with the fact that I still don't have an answer about her bus stop not being available any more. Luckily my posse was there to support with Harlan giving me time to take a walk and my ladies reminding me that, indeed, it'll all be ok, and dinner being delivered right to my door and a clean house to come home too. Holy hell- what would I do without my village?
Ruby seems to like her teachers, she's happy that her besty is in her class and she is working really hard. So, here's to a great year (and surviving the first week)!
