First day of school, first day of school

(title to be read in Nemo’s voice, of course)

First day of school is a mixed blessing. What time I have is more free of interruptions, but I have less of it total to work. For example, the boy got home about 3:00 and spent an hour, give or take, on telling me about his first day of high school, and when he was done, it was time to go meet his sister’s bus.

The best part, however, is that both of them seemed to enjoy their days, and whatever nervousness they had seems to have been dispelled. They had much to say, and I hope their enthusiasm continues.

  1. So glad they both had good first days. It helps set the tone for the year even though there will be ups and downs.

    • Yes, the first day isn’t really very similar to what an average day will be, but at least they’re not going into the year with defeatist attitudes. ๐Ÿ™‚

  2. I’m glad their school year has started happily.

    Our little ones are back to playschool and nursery this week. New haversacks and juice bottles all around. Two of our daughters and all four toddling cousins are going on holiday together next week. The boys will be starting proper school this time next year, so family holidays will be limited by term times from then on.

    • The family togetherness sounds marvelous!

      Yes, planning around the school year becomes necessary, doesn’t it?

  3. I’m glad they both had good first days, and I hope they have more good days at school for the rest of the year than they have bad days.

  4. How long do you think it’ll last, a week? Two at the outside? ๐Ÿ™‚
