A new set of firsts

Today, Grey and I packed up the Beats and drove as a family to their school. Off-loading everyone from the car, we all collected of separate backpacks and made our way into their school. After unpacking their backpacks, unloading nap rolls and newly-labeled fall clothing and exchanging kisses, Grey and I made our way to the bus stop and rode together into the city.

First day of pre-kindergarten. A transitional year out of daycare and prep for Kindergarten. Where has the time gone?

First day of a new commute for me. Though there are 2-3 days a week where we separate when I have to go onto campus, I'm now also battling for a space on the train.

First week on a new position. The story about that one has been epic, scary and strange.

All of these are new firsts. New chapters to the ongoing adventure. All of it bringing moments of excitement, dread, calm, confusion, pining for the past and hope for the future.

More to come soon, I promise


  1. How are they this old???? Gah. So are they in preschool all day, or will they go to daycare? Good luck on your new position! I can't wait to hear about it.

  2. Wow. Sounds like we have a lot of catching up to do!

    I can hardly believe the Beats are wearing backpacks to SCHOOL.

    I was so happy to see you in Feedly :-)

  3. I've been wondering where you were & how things were going!! Looking forward to hearing more soon! :) Good luck with the new schedule! (I can relate to the train commute...!)

  4. Times seems to just fly on by -- I see my friends' kids and wonder how on earth they got to school so quickly. I"m so happy to see you again! I look forward to updates and hope all is well with the new position. I actually miss taking the train into work (when I worked in NYC), if you can get a seat then it is far more relaxing to have a passive ride and read or put your makeup on or whatever. Sounds like your experience is a bit less relaxing though. All good thoughts to you!

  5. I've also been wondering how you are. Tried to email but ...

    Loving that the firsts though are filled with hope and excitement. The other things are natural, but focus on the hope and excitement.

    Also, five? Argh!
