We marked off another mile stone in the parent memory book. Jake had his first day of school... ever! He started Kindergarten today and loved it so much that he got upset when we came to pick him up and said he did not want to go home yet. I don't really blame him. He has an amazing teacher and he was only there for two and a half hours which really doesn't seem long enough at all. Every other Friday he will be going for 5 hours so it evens out.
Riley also had her first day of second grade. She said they did "all the fun stuff" today. Her teacher seems very nice and I am sure we will be pleased. Riley also has some of her good friends from the past few years in her class as well. She was excited and said she couldn't wait to go back tomorrow. The challenge now is to make sure they love school this much when they are 13.
