Our two oldest children started school this week. Luca has been telling Lincoln what it means to be in school, and he’s been unable to contain his excitement for the last few days. But he’s certain he’s already figured it out. He’s convinced school is about:
- Riding the Bus
- Carrying a new Backpack
And when you’re in Kindergarten those are definitely two activities to get excited about. I enjoyed watching them both smile and giggle and tell each other stories about school tonight.
Their enthusiasm is contagious. They haven’t become jaded by the system or the politics or adults telling them what they can’t achieve. They are still little sponges soaking up bits and pieces of information along the way.
Lincoln told me tonight he wants to work at the zoo. Luca wants to play the piano. They believe they can become anything they want.
And that’s how it should be.
