Cameron’s first day of school was before Eli’s because of the every-other-day kindergarten. He was excited and confident and never looked back. Summers with Cameron are hard, he loves sociality, structure and being busy. Going back to school just suits him.
Eli met Mrs. White at a back to school night, and she won his heart. She was sweet, gentle, petite and lovely. She was exactly what Eli needed to feel safe and excited about school. It was a teacher-student match made in heaven.
I love this picture. It just depicts their personalities so well. Cameron front and center, hamming it up for the photo-op. Eli with reserved and cautious pleasure. And Miriam, that quirky little imp.
