Ruby Tuesday: Back to School Edition
Today was Ruby's first full morning back to school (on Monday they split the class into hour-long shifts) and it was the first time that she'd seen her best school chum, Julia, since summer began. The girls were a little shy with each other at first, but before long they were chasing each other around the school yard. Parents will always tell you that there's nothing more amazing than watching their children make real friends, and I'm telling you it's true. Seeing Ruby form relationships with other little people really warms my heart.
For their art project today, the teacher asked the kids to draw a picture of their favourite thing about school. Ruby drew a picture of herself and Julia, together, arm in arm. This is her favourite thing about school -- better than the toys or the snacks or even the water table. I hope that Julia knows she's a pretty lucky little girl.
