Today is the first day of school.
Yesterday my mom called me and said, "you ALWAYS call me on the first day of school! Did you forget?" She didn't realize that we have a wacky school schedule here in the desert.
For the past 25 of 28 years, I've parked my kids in this same spot and taken their photo on the first day of school.
Today is the last time I will do that.
Today is the first day of my baby's last year of public school.
Next year she'll be off to new adventures.
Today has always been a day of relief and joy.
There's a little more "me" time in the day.
Today it's kinda bittersweet.
The last of the firsts.
Now I gotta go call my mom.
