And she’s off . . .

to school.


A new school.

A new grade.

A new educational model.

And she loves it.


After nearly being late for her first day of school – due to her mother’s inability to pass by any stray dog without attempting to find the owner – and being rushed right in the door last in line . . . her day was spectacular.

The sun was even shining . . . which is worth noting because we have had 33 consecutive days of rain.

Upon arrival home she immediately began planning her outfit for the second day of school.

Afterwards we spent a full half an hour in the backyard – her swinging and me sitting in a lawn chair attempting to restore my vitamin d level – discussing the events of the day.

I heard about the smart board, her very own desk, sharing scissors, the up and down project, the names of all of her new friends, her now favorite teacher’s dress, the word search, being the very first kid to be called on . . . not able to tumble all of her thoughts out fast enough she finally just stopped, looked at me and said, “I have so much to tell you.”

I pray she is always so forthcoming with information.

Again this evening at bedtime she shared more . . .  I heard about the teacher’s microphone, taking attendance, the eraser bucket, the teacher’s personal workspace, the math books they forgot to look at, the water fountain, lunch, recess . . .

and as I write she is lying in bed with her head spinning.

Full of happy thoughts.
