First Day of School

I've been slow on posting words, pics and vid of the important events happening in our lives right now. So before any more time passes, I am going to get the First Day of School up. Surprisingly, I did not cry during the Rose ceremony--as I did last year even though I didn't have a child participating in it. I guess I was too busy passing the tissue box and taking pictures. For the friends and family who weren't able to be there for the assembly, here was the beginning of J's first day of first grade.

what kind of hippie school do you send your kid to? my send off to first grade was more like "here's a buck for your lunch, don't get hit crossing the street." well...i'm making that up. i don't remember first grade.

I don't remember the first day of first grade either, but my friend Van remembers and he told me about it. He remembers me wearing a yellow dress and getting hit in the face with a kick ball from one of the older kids and gushing blood all over my new yellow dress... THAT'S why my child goes to a touchy feely school--because I was traumatized and deeply scarred into not remembering the first day of school.

I did have to walk to 1st grade myself. Things are SO different these days. It seems like there is a "graduation" every single year. I don't know...seem like it makes the big one at the end sort of anti-climatic. (I couldn't listen to audio, so I really have no idea what was going on here).
