Perhaps because we brushed 2/3's of first day firsts out of the way last week. And perhaps because we've been eagerly anticipating this day for a while.
Or it could be Luke's business like demeanor. See...
His grim expression belies his excitement. Really, it does.
He's been counting down the days until he officially started kindergarten. He had no problem braving a rainy walk and was happily escorted down the hall by Reese with the rest of us in tow.
He found his seat and then in continued business-like manner, he solemnly emptied his supplies on the supply table. (BTW...I forgot there was a "n" in solemn. Crazy silent letters. Crazy English language!)
The only thing that would have made this perfect was him dressed like this:
But that might have overdone it.

Terribly exciting I know.
And Luke's first words when he saw me after school?
"Mama, I didn't have to go to the principal's office once today!"
May this be sign of his school career to come. ;)
