This was the first year we had to split ourselves between two classrooms, and although I was nervous at disappointing either girl, the arrangement made the day much easier. In the past two years E cringed if we missed even a moment but today she understood she'd be sharing us with L. We criss-crossed the halls, alternating and alternating wending G through the halls. I saw E give a report on Jane Goodall and L master her cannonball lowercase letters. I am always gratified to see them thriving in their little nests.
Visiting Day was scheduled through 2pm, though school goes until 3:30. We said goodbye to the girls and the lovely husband and G went off to the grocery store. I went for a coffee and a pedicure because I never have a weekday afternoon hour of solitude. All my colleagues at work called this a vacation day, but I was very happy with my vacation hour.
