My son just wrapped up his first day of kindergarten today.
This morning, my wife and I took him to school.
As the 19-or-so students gathered around the teacher holding up a big sign with her name on it in the lawn outside the school, it seemed like pandemonium. Many of the kids were wide-eyed -- trying to soak in the atmosphere.
You could see the uncertainty. The unknowns were so great for those who are 5-and-6.
One girl in his class was being consoled by another teacher.
At this point, I hear my son ask the other teacher a question.
"Are we going to do math today?" he said.
The teacher replied with a diplomatic answer, "We're going to get from Point A to Point B today."
Tonight, I asked my son how the rest of his day went.
He told me what he had for lunch, how a classmate got into trouble and that he hated rest time.
I pried for more details.
He sighed and said, "Mom already asked all the questions!"
