First day of 8th for Trevor and 1st for Griffin

Trevor started 8th grade.
His first day of school was uneventful. He is happy with his classes and his schedule. He is going to the high school for honors geometry 4 days a week for first period. He was happy to see some friends he has not seen in awhile. I have no doubt it will be a good year.
Griffin started 1st grade at a new school.
He is no longer in his small little private school. He is in the big public school and he is thrilled. He was so excited to start first grade. He could not wait for his first school bus ride. And he got quite the bus ride. He went to after care after school and did not get off at the bus when they arrived at after care because they called it something other than after care. He was supposed to get off at the first stop but he was still on the bus when they arrived at the last stop. Griffin spent at least 1.5 hours on the bus this afternoon. Oh-well, he does not seem too upset about it. All is good. Thank god I did not know about it at the time because I would have been a huge basket case. My crying episode after putting him on the bus this morning was enough sobbing for one day. I survived and he did better than survive. I think he is ready to go back for more.
As I watched him walk away to the bus, I felt like my heart was leaving me and jumping on that bus,too. You think this would get easier seeing it is the 3rd time, but no not easier at all!
Nolan went for his second day at school and all seems good. He likes his teachers and to him most importantly, he like being with all his friends.

It looks like it will be a good school year which makes my heart so happy!
