The kids were so excited to get back to school yesterday. My third-grader and second-grader are so grown up now--they're allowed to get on and off the bus without a parent present. They convinced me that they were ready, but it still felt pretty weird letting them walk to the bus stop by themselves. Harder than letting them walk home from the same spot yesterday afternoon. It's a safe little rural road, nothing to worry about, right?
I'm really not the worrying, overprotective type, or so I thought, but it was hard for me to let go!
