Well the boy is starting 1st grade next week. We recieved all his paperwork and the teacher he got comes with good recommendation. I still have left over school supplies so we dont have to buy much, and his clothes are good as well. I should be thrilled, it wont be too expensive this year.
So why do I have a knot in my stomach about him starting school??
I guess because as a kindergardener he was still my "baby".
Now in 1st grade, he is growing up. He has to go through the FRONT DOORS with everyone else. I don't drop him off in the back, and hand him over to a capable woman holding the doors open for him. I have to let him go free, and enter the building alone. I think this may be harder than dropping him off in Kindergarden. *sigh*....
