Roan had his first day of Pre-K today. I am convinced that somewhere, somehow, in the universe Lula is bringing good luck to this kid. Not only did he land a highly coveted spot at PS20, which is across the street from our house, apparently he got THE best teacher and the best classroom. It's a huge classroom, as big as our apartment, with beautiful wood paneling, a big bay window (covered in safety gates of course), and even a fireplace (which they don't use- but still!) It's a very old school so it looks well loved but for a NYC public school that's pretty fancy.
We tried to meet as many other parents and kids but it was a bit of a whirlwind. A very good, happy vibe, a fantastic variety of people all looking a bit hesitant but excited. Glorious weather. Name tags. Forms to fill out. Pretty much exactly the same as I remember my first day of school. I think the first day of school might be the most universally uniting experience ever.
