The kiddo is starting first grade in two weeks.
Hold on a sec...let me wipe away my tears. OK.
Ah, the joy of being a grader. I imagine it's a lot like kindergarten, but with less finger painting and more arithmetic. Maybe he'll start getting homework assignments. Maybe he'll have to study for a test. He has been expressing a healthy amount of anxiety, but tonight he is nothing but excited about his new Buster Posey lunch box and back pack.
We're excited to find out who his teacher will be, and which of his classmates from last year will be there with him. And if course, to find out which day is matzo ball soup and bagel day on the hot lunch menu.
