Alison started second grade yesterday with nary a problem or a bit of reluctance to leave her silly, sentimental mother.
It was actually a lot of fun. She's abandoned her pink backpack for an LPS special that her Aunt Margaret bought her. She loves it, and it's the perfect size.
We rode over to school on my bike and her tandem to find the parking lot full of uniformed kids happy to see each other. In addition to seeing her classmates again, we got to welcome Helen Grace Mansfield to Christ the King. She'll be next door to Alison, in first grade this year.
Fletcher rounded out the Team (John) Vielee CKS continent, starting kindergarten today.
It's good to get back into the school routine, but man did summer go quick.
