Just a quickie. Today was the first day of school! Marls starts first grade today and Doodle starts pre-k. First we took Marls to the big kid playground, where she proceeded to burst into tears and throw herself into my arms. I wasn't expecting that at all, so of course I fell over and almost took out a couple of kids. She cried for a very short time and then one of her sweet friends came over, took her hand, and led her off to play. Then, expecting a full on meltdown Doodle style, we headed over to Doodle's playground. Kid threw her backpack down and was off to play without a look back. I went and gave her a push on the swings and a kiss and we left, not wanting to tempt fate. Peeked in on Marls and she was on the big slide laughing and playing. So, all is good. I can't wait to here about their first days. Norman is bored with me already. We'll settle into a rhythm though. I took more, but here's a little picture from this morning.
