Off to school!

Today was Sashimi's first day of kindergarten.  And his first ride on a school bus.

I have been quite calm about the whole thing because I have been longing for a break during the day from the constant loudness and wrestling and fighting (and loud shreiks of laughter when they are being naughty).  And now that it is quiet in the house, I am not really sure what to do with myself. Yes, the house could be cleaned, and yes, I could be doing lots of one-on-one stuff with Keesadilla while iBean sleeps, but today, I am doing nothing.  I am just taking this whole experience in and realizing that this is the new status quo.  There will be lots of time to clean.

He has been ready for this for so long!


  1. He looks so ready! How did the first day go? Hope you got to enjoy doing nothing without having to break up a fight. :)

  2. And that's exactly how I always felt when both kids left for the first day of school each and every year they left for the first day of school, never minding what grade they were in, I felt exactly the same as you are feeling today in that first day- slightly melancholic in a few heartbeats.... you could almost say "paradise lost" as well.
