Our first day of Kindergarten started at 5:30 am. J came in our room and told us he couldn't sleep. We all cuddled together for the next hour or so, sleeping on and off. I seem to remember my husband telling him he was not allow to talk if he was in our bed. I honestly have no idea what time my husband wakes up, somewhere between 6:30-6:45ish maybe a few minutes later some mornings. At 7:30 J and I got out of bed, its best to give him a full hour to get ready. School starts at 8:55, but we needed to leave at 8:30 because we walked. I'm glad we walked, it took us 20 minutes with Nan in the stroller. Its about three quarters of a mile. Lots of parents were walking their children, but even more were driving. (They cut bus routes this year, with budget cuts.) I was glad we walked so we wouldn't be in the traffic. As we started to join more people walking their children, I had to try to not get emotional. Kindergarten is way different than preschool!
