The First day of School

I’ve been looking forward to this day all summer. I dropped the boys off at 8.45 and went for a run (first one since NOVEMBER) and had a chance to clear my head. It’s Marcus’s 2nd year at St. Phillip’s and he was really looking forward to seeing old friends, Mason was cheerful right alongside him until I dropped him in a strange classroom without his brother and headed out the door. He started to cry, as did I, and I made a run for it. I’m sure the waterworks lasted only a minute and I thought if I lingered it would just prolong the drama. And now I’m experiencing the exact opposite feeling, staring at the clock and I can’t wait to pick them up, to see the excitement in their eyes and hear all about their big morning.
