This week embarks another school year. For our family it is a new milestone. Our oldest daughter starts Grade 1 at a school new to her. She is very excited as she already knows many friends from day care and dance. I think Mom and Dad are more nervous.
A friend of ours is a teacher at the school and we are doing a child swap in the mornings. We’re dropping off our daughter while picking up her daughter to take to preschool. Our friend offered to make sure our daughter makes it to the playground. My husband was nervous about leaving her at the playground. It would only be for about 10 minutes before the bell rings. For me I’m willing to let my little bird spread her wings and learn to fly. It is time.
