It felt very "Nemo" at my house this morning as both kids were extremely excited about returning to school - until they walked out of the door, that is. It was cold in Philly today. Super cold. Some of that first day enthusiasm dampened a bit when some pretty frigid gusts hit them square in the face.
Drop off is never fun in bad weather. When it's cold or rainy, there's no outside play. It's straight indoors to assembly. As my oldest isn't a big fan of this method, it made for a pretty unhappy arrival.
But it was a new year with new folders, new books and new assignments. Let's hope it's a good one!
