We have the first day of school under our belts, and we all came through just fine. Camille was so excited to go to school this morning – excited about her uniform, her lunch box, her bookbag, the whole shebang. Her excitement helped keep my anxieties down, too.
We stopped on the way in to get a picture of her with the stone lions at the front door of her school. Of course she wanted to ride them.
She didn’t hesitate when it was time to say good-bye and walk through the door to her classroom. I wanted to cry, but she was so happy and I didn’t dare give her any cause for concern or tears of her own. So I kept it together – on the outside anyway.
It was a long day of waiting and wondering how she was doing. I was so happy to see her heading my way in the car pool lane when the school day was done. She says her day went well and that she had a good time, but boy did she look tired. Thankfully, there is a restaurant serving ice cream just a block away, and a little treat perked her right up. Hoping tomorrow goes just as well.
