First day of fall term

Today is D's first day of fall term preschool. He's in a new room, but one teacher has moved up with him, which is nice. He insisted on carrying his bee backpack and hand-me-down Thomas lunchbox. I walked him to his classroom, and was lining up his backpack and lunch box out in the hall when I noticed that he was gone. I walked into the classroom and found him already sitting with about five other kids and the teacher, doing puzzles. I don't think he noticed me leave.

The drop-off and pick-up schedule is going to be a bit harder than I thought. There's about 85 minutes between the kids' drop-off times, so we'll make two runs. The pick-up times are about an hour apart, so I'll probably just hang out with D on a playground until C gets out of school. It's only two days a week, but I need to work on this to make sure that my husband doesn't lose too much time due to the staggered drop-offs.
