A birthday celebration yesterday for Son #2.
Most of his (old) class came.
In the Steiner/Waldorf system, children stay with the same class, with the same teacher, for all of their primary school years. As you can imagine, they become a very tightknit bunch.
As do their parents.
So it was a birthday party, but also a kind of farewell.
A good time was had by all.
He's reached the age when, although he tolerates it, it embarrasses him when I kiss him in front of all his friends.
(See the clenched fists?)
Tomorrow a new school year starts.
New school, new classes, new beginnings.
