First Day of School

Today was the first day of school here in Southern Virginia!

I took the dogs for a walk this morning and saw all the excited elementary school kids out there with moms and dads taking pictures starting a new chapter in many of their young lives.

The little boy I nanny for is going into kindergarten. He is so cute and so excited. For the past two weeks and probably more all he has talked about is going to school. And today he was not disappointed. He rode the bus and sat next to a boy who he went to preschool with. And a big surprise to me is that his older sister (5th grade) walked him to his class this morning. She can be very mean to him the majority of the day.

With school in session now I don't have to be at work till 11am and I am loving all this extra time!! I am still waking up at 6 but now I'm not rushed.


  1. It's wild how much earlier we start school here. We've been in school for weeks now.

  2. I thought everyone was already in school!

    But yeah aren't the little ones the cutest...they're so excited.
