Mother shares hilarious before and after school photos of her daughter
I coached my children's soccer teams, for about 12 or 13 years. One thing happened each, and every first grade year. Practice began a few weeks before the start of school, but because of the end of summer, and family vacations, these practices were fairly sporadically attended. On the first day of school, however, every team member attended. This is the one day Kindergarteners, and First graders should NOT attend. After the long first day, the children were emotionally drained. And within the first half hour of practice, the entire team, yes, including me, would be crying! I would see it building over the first 15-20 minutes, and then suddenly it would break, one would start crying, soon all.
The first year this happened, I tried to carry on, the second I punted. I called them into a huddle, praised them for their hard work, and sent them home.
The entire first week of school was difficult but that first day took a huge toll.
Welcome to life. Whatever you believe it mostly gets more grueling until the kids leave home, so get used to it.
