|Dapper as can be.|
Friday was G's last day at the university children's learning center. While I've had hell with these people (you know if you follow me on Twitter or Facebook), I did get a little teary when his teachers hugged him, told him they loved him, and wished him well.
Tomorrow is his first day at a daycare here in town, just a few blocks from our house, where he'll spend a few hours after school each day. We decided to let him spend this week getting to know everyone before school starts on August 24. I've known the owners my entire life (quite literally), so I hope it'll be a smooth transition.
Meet the Teacher night! This coming Thursday! We get to learn our way around and drop off school supplies.
I've been online this morning investigating "real food" lunches from 100 Days of Real Food. Greyson has elected to carry a lunchbox (we'll see how long that lasts when he sees the steak fingers and pizza), so I'm hoping to amass a list of lunch items that extends beyond sandwich, chips, and something desert'ish. So far I've logged 58 possibilities that do not suck.
People have been asking me, "Are you going to cry on this first day of school?" And the answer is, I don't really know. I'm not at all worried about him making friends or being comfortable. The kiddo is super adaptable and a definite "people person," but it's hard in other ways.
|Itty bitty. When we first started our commute together.|
Greyson started at the children's learning center at the university when he was two, so for the last three years we have had a 30-minute commute each way every day. I've had a chirpy, mostly happy car buddy for three years, and the fact that we won't get to talk on the way to and from school every day does make me sad. Up side: I can turn on the radio or listen to an audiobook, but I'd much rather hear things like, "GREAT WHITE SHARKS hunt little fish to cuddle in the morning."

Let's be real...it doesn't get much cuter than that.
