Today was the big day. Ben started Kindergarten. I have so many thoughts swirling around in my head and I am a mess of emotions (may have to do with the fact that I also have a 12-day-old baby). But for now I'm just going to say that he loved it. He thought that it was a little long. He was worn out and told me he was going to take a nap with me (he didn't). He didn't make any friends but played with a lot of kids. His teacher is "too nice." Guess he's just used to his cranky pregnant/postpartum mom. And he is in the green group, which will be easy for him to remember considering our last name and all. One more thing I don't want to forget about today. When we got back into the car I heard Jackson turn to his brother's empty spot in the car and quietly say, "I'm gonna miss you bruda (brother)." Almost lost it right then and there. Somehow I held it together all day though. So excited and nervous to be on this new adventure with Ben.
