Benjamin missed yesterday because of the eclipse, so he started kindergarten today. He and Dave made his lunch last night, and he and I walked to school while Dave dropped Phoebe off and met us at Sanchez. Benjamin was both excited and nervous on the playground, but he lined up and made it into his classroom to put his lunch in the laundry basket marked “Mrs. Rothman” and adorned with a picture of a ladybug. He hung his backpack on his hook and disappeared from our view.
After school we learned that he’d had a good day. Congratulations, little boy! You’re truly getting big.
