I probably have seen not quite a thousand pictures of friends’ kids on their first day of school, and many have been of that sweet, first Kindergarten day. I, too, partook of this rite of passage on Friday. My wife and I walked our daughter across the street to her new school. We didn’t drop her off to the classroom, but we deposited her in the before school care where she sat next to a girl who is in her class and colored for a while before being led to her homeroom.
At the end of the day, she recounted a few of the things she had done, but she was surprisingly reluctant to share though her body showed the excitement of the day.
