Today was the first day of school for Miss Butterfly.
We were all very (very) happy to hear that her school had power, after the weekend brush of Hurricane Irene, and would actually be open to receive students this morning.
This year Butterfly will ride the big “blue” bus that is yellow. She hopped right on this morning.
And after a few hours, she hopped right off.
Her teacher this year, Mrs. Dez, is going to be a lot of fun.
She is thrilled this year to have a DESK all her OWN. She is also excited to put her school supplies in her DESK.
It’s just too thrilling.
This morning, before the bus, I asked her a few questions:
“Are you excited?”
“What are you excited about?”
“Playing with my friends on the playground. And lunch.”
“Who are you looking forward to playing with?”
“You know! My friends!”
“Are you nervous about anything?”
“Alright. Have fun!”
“You know I will!”
Tonight we went out to ice cream to celebrate the first day of school. She had cookie dough ice cream with a cherry on top. She said it’s been a cherry on top kind of day, wonderful and special.
We measured her (52 and 3/4 inches tall) and ended with a father’s blessing for the school year (protection and friends).
I think it’s going to be a great year!
