Today Henry officially begins his public Montessori journey! I don't know where the time went and how suddenly my little, pink screaming newborn is gone and this self-sufficient 5-year-old stands in his place.
I'm going to miss him here with me, but I know he's going to be an excellent hands. He's having a hard time with this transition but is also excited. He is working through some struggles right now and he is just so brave. I'm incredibly grateful for all the time we've had together and I know things are only looking up!
I asked him some questions before heading off to school, it was clear he was not in the mood:
What is your favorite color? Yellow
What are you looking forward to today? "Learning new work"
What do you want to be when you grow up? "A superhero"
What will you miss the most today? "My blankie. Stop asking questions."
And, that's it. I'm a rambly incoherent mess. Up the big school stairs he went. I hope he learns kindness, and peace, and strength, and all the work he wants!
