Iris had her first day of first grade yesterday, and Neil and Zinnia had their first day "on the preschool side" last Thursday. (They were in the toddler room at the same school last year.) It was great to have the kids so excited to go back to school and see most of their friends again, and for me to know most of the parents and kids from last year. Iris's school has a little party the first morning, and it was a bit intimidating to be there last year when I didn't know anyone very well. Both schools are starting to feel a bit like home to me, and I'll be a bit sad to leave if we move and have to start at other schools.
