In a word: smoooooth! The boys went happily to their classrooms and I had five hours of daytime to myself to do important things like consolidate the partially-used Altoid containers in my purse.
I took this pics this afternoon, but it's almost what they looked like this morning when we got to the school parking lot.
...and then splashed into their classrooms.
Let's hope that eagerness lasts another 12 years or so.
