You know what the best thing about the first day of school is? When Bebe sees her friend and goes barreling toward her squealing, "Larisha!" And Larisha yells, "Elizabeth!" as she runs and they look like a 7 year old, all-girl version of Cathy and Heathcliff running across the moors and then they fling themselves into a full-contact hug. And at the same time, Lulu is propelling herself at several of her friends and then they all skip to the playground, holding hands and chattering away.
That's the best.
And tomorrow, Cha goes back to preschool and there has been a lot talk about how she can't wait to see her friend, Suliman. I predict much sweet cuteness will abound. And then I'll have to come home and take a nap, just to recover from all the best friend love.
