1st day back to school :O)
E has been talking about this day since leaving her class in mid-June. thankfully, i was able to help her understand the months a bit (she can recite all of them, but doesn't yet grasp the concept of how long they are- from her perspective). when August rolled around, she was ready to head to "new school" (the name she's given the public school, vs. her "old school" - daycare). she is head over heels for her teacher, Ms. S, and was eager to see her and give her a big hug. she was literally unable to utter a word, but instead almost panted, waving her hands, "jumping" in her car seat, as Ms. S came over and opened the door to say hello.
in my haste, i only caught a small bit of the morning drop off on video (which unfortunately i can't share) and now have lost the Flip entirely, assuming and hoping Ms. S has discovered it left behind by the 2 dorky parents that insisted this first day back be captured live. i trust that she is guarding it with her life. :)
i'll pack the camera for pick up and hope for a couple of shots as we wave good-bye to the first day in her favorite class.
what a blessing to see her "so cited" (her words), smiling and happy, without a single glance in our direction after mama and baba shared "see you later" snuggles.
