This was a HUGE milestone for all of us. But Ryan was really excited to start school again after a busy summer. Unlike the other kids we knew at the time, he was looking forward to the full day and to what 1st grade would be like. He started school on Sept 2nd, 2014. We walked him to the door and he had no issues going right in. He already knew where his classroom was because we had gone there as a family a week prior (Open House / Find your Classroom day). But he had such pride walking in, and never looked back. This was his realm, his world. And he was ready to conquer it. I couldn’t be more proud.
