First Grade Day Two

aug 22 first grade.jpg

It’s all the same stuff, slightly different amounts at slightly different times: Excitement, nerves, joy, fear, exhaustion, hope, uncertainty, trust.  The amygdala is active.  The body is tired.   The brain is full of great ideas I know better than to pursue this week, or maybe even next week.  If it seems like a good idea next week then maybe.  Until then, one foot in front of the other.  Keep him fed, slept, and active just enough.  And same for me.  That’s enough.  That’s plenty.

I’m gonna keep going.
