How long does it take for the germs of a new school year to sink in? Less than 5 days apparently. Ox doesn't start school officially for another 3 days yet he has already had Foot-Hand-Mouth disease along with Little Frog and Mastermind himself (who, despite his illness, is currently painting our dining room).

I will forever love this First Day of Preschool picture.
Little Frog got better just in time for her first day of preschool at the Montessori attended by Ox for the past 2 years.

I had just enough time to enjoy the feeling of my first "real" Friday of the school year before the sniffles came on and am currently typing this in a Sudafed/generic Excedrin daze.

Although I have to admit I was feeling a bit dazed to begin with. It is such a surreal feeling to have both of my kids in school. It is truly like we've all entered a new phase of life. I didn't expect this feeling, or the pre-kindergarten dreams (my own, not Ox).

I'm not sentimental about the kids growing up, I'm very excited for both of them. It is going to be interesting to be on the parent side of a school rather than the teacher side. Ox's open house was overwhelming and good at the same time. Despite the teacher guilt I've decided to volunteer in Ox's school for his first day, for the peace of mind of both of us. I told my principal I'd take notes, though, I have a professional excitement to see how another school handles all the little details.

My sniffles are taking over, so this is it for now.
