It doesn’t seem like that long ago when we brought her home.
Yesterday we saw Bunny off to her first day of kindergarten. Brian took the day off and we saw Bunny off to the bus stop, then met her at school to make sure she got in okay. She did great. In fact, she didn’t even wave goodbye when she got on the bus. I was worried at first about whether or not she would be okay on the bus, both going and coming, but that ended up being her favorite part of the day!
When we met her at school she just headed into her classroom like it was no big deal!
Nagini missed her sister and kept asking for her. She also wanted me to take photos that she could show her sister later. It was cute.
We ended up running errands and getting the oil changed for the car. Unfortunately that took way longer than expected, but otherwise it was a surreal day.
I felt a little emotional at parts during the day, like when I took Nagini to swimming lessons and out of habit, I said, “Come on girls!” only to realize that it was just Nagini. Sigh.
I know this is a new stage in our life and this first week will definitely be a time for adjustment and getting used to a new normal. I don’t want to backtrack or feel overly sad. I will miss our routines, but I know new opportunities will come from that.
Next week Nagini starts preschool too so that will be yet another period of adjustment. Wish me luck! Ha.
