And So It Begins

I got only mildly choked up in the schoolyard yesterday morning. I don't think Sean noticed -- he was too busy taking in all the hub-bub as he waited to go into his classroom.

He had a big smile on his face when I picked him up. He said kindergarten was great. Just don't ask him for specifics. Where I want a detailed, minute-by-minute description, he prefers to give me a simple summary statement.

I think he still doesn't understand what going to school every day entails. As he was dawdling over breakfast a few minutes ago, I reminded him that we didn't want to be late this morning. "Where are we going?" he asked. "School, remember?" I said. "Oh, right!"
