First Day of School, Part One

Brennan's first day of school started out well. When I went to wake him up, he didn't want to wake up, then it was like a bell went off in his head...he sat up, said, "Oh, yeah, today is the first day of school!" and then he ran downstairs to get dressed.
We dropped him off and he did pretty good, once he figured out how to open his locker.
The saddest part is as Jackson and I are walking home, Jack kept looking back saying, "Where Brennan???" over and over and over again. He finally caught on to my response and changed his chant to "Brennan first day school" all the way home.
Now that we've been home for a while while, I am starting to notice a quiet that didn't used to be here. We may need to pull out the "emergency" radio and fill a bit of the quiet.
Stay tuned for part two this evening.

5 Words to brighten my day:

Wow- you've been talking about it all summer, but it just hit home that he's in school. I can send my two year old your way a few days a week to help fill the quiet.

He's so grown up! You get to walk to school? That sounds so fun. Little Jackson is going to miss big brother. Whenever we pick up Ayden from school, Ian starts hyperventilating. These are fun times. We have that same quiet in our house. My solution: we're getting cable!
