Yesterday was the first day of the 4th grade for the Kidlet. I can’t believe it.
As per our usual tradition, our first day consisted of a special breakfast (a maple bacon donut!) followed by school in the park. This tradition started in kindergarten when we were unable to stay at our house the first day of school because it was being sprayed for bugs. That’s the beauty of homeschooling I guess.
I remember that first day. The Kidlet was feverish that morning, and we ate pancakes at The Pancake House…all of which she vomited all over the table afterwards. Then we sat at the park with her books. It’s been a tradition ever since…minus the vomiting.
