Not pictured: Tucker 1st grade.
Tucker was having a rough morning. He is so excited about school, but nervous too, though he wouldn’t admit that. He didn’t want me to take his picture (so I respected that) and he was quiet and sullen. It made me sad, but I know he is excited and I well remember first-day-of-school-jitters.
And please, please, don’t tell Apollo it’s not his first day of school, because he was just as excited as the other five. So I humored him and took his picture too.
By the time they were up at the driveway waiting for the bus, Tucker was in high spirits. It makes me happy to see this whole pack of children starting school together. They’re going to take that place by storm!
Apollo entertained himself (and his siblings) running up and down the driveway.
And then the bus came, and they were off.
The bus was a full ten minutes late and I had little time to reflect as I had to leave immediately to take Iris to her babysitting job. Then Kalina, Apollo, and I headed to Costco to pick a few things up, then came home.
Judah, Tilly, and Enoch went for a hike on our property and now Apollo is napping and the house is quiet. I’m off to help Kalina with her math.
Have a great day!
