Ben started school last Monday- 3 1/2 weeks early. You can do things like that when your father's the principal!
He has been counting down the days for months now, and was so excited he was ready to go at about 7am. After the manditory photo call, he picked Em up, looked her in the eye and said "See you later Em. I'm gonna miss ya." Then blowing kisses over his shoulder, he walked across the driveway to school. So very cute and suddenly so very grown up.
The only near hitch was when his deeply uncool mother attempted to put both bags straps over his shoulders. "I just have one strap mum, like the big kids. I'm a big school boy now."
Boy how time flies.
