Liam started second grade on Thursday of last week. He wasn't nervous, he wasn't worried, it was no big deal to him. He hopped on the bus and headed off to school without a backward glance.
The other mothers and me? Cheering. The bus driver was laughing her head off at us.
He likes his teacher, knows all his classmates, and seems to have settled into the routine of school without too much trouble. Last year was a difficult transition. He has spent a year going to half-day kindergarten and then he transitioned to full day first grade. That first month of school was brutal with him. He was tired and cranky and difficult. This year is another story. He seems to be falling back into the school routine with almost no trouble. *knock on wood*
Today begins the first full week of school and, looking back on last year's post from this time, it was not an easy week last year. I hope that it's easier on everyone this year.
Here's to school and an end to The Crap Filled Summer of 2012!
