My oldest nephew started school recently [the first grade, where does the time go?!] and Riggs and I went to Anchorage to see how his first day of school went. He goes to a lovely little charter school in downtown Anchorage with a great emphasis on community where family members are nearly always welcome to come and visit. When he was in kindergarten last year, we visited quite a few times, but Riggs was just a baby.
This year, he was sooooo excited to be in a huge [to him] colorful building full of his favorite type of people ever: 'big' kids. Plus he got to see his cousins, who just might be his two favorite people ever, even over his mama, unless he's hurt or tired of course. I love seeing my child so happy to see my family, it just makes my heart swell! There's something so sweet about see him love on his grandma [my mommy!] too, and I'm glad I got some sweet pictures from the day.
Don't you miss school? I do! I was wishing I was in the first grade again as Corbin showed me around his classroom. I always loved school and was excited to learn and can't wait to see that same excitement in Riggs when he's school age!
