back to school...

back to school.
they were nervous
but good nervous.
i told them the minute they find their desks they'd be all better.
it happened sooner than that.
as soon as they stepped onto the playground they were surrounded by friends -
measuring each other to see how tall they'd gotten over the summer.
all the butterflies went away.
they are lucky...
their school is like a big hug
warm, comforting, safe.
they were all smiles this afternoon when i picked them up too.
it was a great first day back.
