First day of 1st and 4th- I wish all kids could go to such wonderful schools and be as excited to do so! #dreams

First day of first and fourth grades  

First day of first and fourth grades  

Oliver: "Today was one of my favorite days EVER!" 

Jack: "My day was awesome. Because I'm in 4th grade, I now get to check out four books from the library each week!  This is going to be a great year!"

I feel SO lucky. And, as an aside, the adrenaline I felt after walking the boys to class and seeing and laughing with so many wonderful friends was epic- comparable to the way I felt after giving birth. #nothyperbole

I ran, marketed, organized, made cakes, showered! And even had leftover energy to take the kids out to celebrate and then to a local park to play pitch and catch for a good, hot hour.  

School rocks.
