Today is the First Day
Today is the first day of school for my son. He's five and every day this summer he has asked me if tomorrow is the day he'll go to Kindergarten.
Today is that day.
I've taken off work so that I can be there with him and last night he picked out his outfit and helped me make his lunch. He won't be eating it there, but we made it all the same because he was excited and could hardly stop running about the house. If I'm honest with you all I'm excited too. I look at the way that he deals with other kids, the way that he stands up for himself already on the playground, and I know that he's going to be alright. He's smart and I'm so proud of him.
Today is the first day and there will be hard days ahead where he struggles to get things, and easy days where it comes second nature to him. I am so excited for him and he can barely contain himself waiting for me to finish writing this because today is the day he goes to Kindergarten.
Life is coming fast in the Akins household. Let's run with it.
