After family pictures, it was time for all five of us to head across the street to the bus stop. Quite a crowd had gathered, including some other extra adults who were also sending their boy off for the first day.
JJ received much special attention, especially from sister who was more worried for him than he was. Her recess and lunch would be in a different yard, so she wouldn't be there to help him. And what if he got on the wrong bus after school? It does happen.
A blurry grandmother was also quite solicitous.
But, the boy was fine.
Soon it was time for the line to form.
Danica helped guide JJ to the bus.
Climbing the stairs to a fine education.
The adults lingered for a few minutes. Sunglasses may have helped some to hide a tear or two, but that wouldn't be anyone that I know.
Sue was doping a happy dance though.
