Were there tears? Yes.
Laughter and smiles. Without question.
The first day of school is always memorable, especially for kindergartners. Teachers however may choose to forget these days. :)
Though extremely exhausted and ready for bed as of about 5:45 (seriously), today was a great day! My new favorite "knuckleheads" are full of energy, but that energy tends to ooze into me, so I am sure I'll be high-kicking and singing throughout the year (sorry colleagues).
Despite it being day 1, it was relatively uneventful. The only behavior issue was one little friend calling another friend a "boogerhead" while one little lady chose to dump her snack over the floor because it wasn't her favorite flavor. Other than that, they smiled, they listened (as well as 5 year olds do on the first day of school), and they seemed to be happy.
I'll take it. Only 179 to go.
