How was the first day of school? He hesitated for just a second, and then off he went. He came back to the fence once and told me "I just want to stay with you." I crouched down and promised him I would be there when he came out after school, kissed him through the fence, and he was just fine. I was the only one left crying in the playground. When I picked him up he hugged me like he hadn't seen me in a year and then declared, "that was the awesomest day ever!" Guess you could call it a huge success.
In other news...School is 1km away from home, so I get to add 4km to my daily mileage! I'll be keeping that in mind on ice cream night :)
