First Day of School

There's something about the first day of school that marks the time - especially with triplets. Mom and dad will never forget the first time our triplets boys left for school. After five years of mayhem, the house was completely silent. We sat at the kitchen table and just looked at each other. I came home from work to be part of this milestone. I must admit I cried on the drive back to work. Silence can be deafening. Seven years later, the boys still ride the bus to school. They still wait outside in the driveway and that old bus still squeaks to a stop in the same spot. The only thing that's changed is that dad now sits inside and watches out the window until they get on. They don't want us outside for fear that their friends will see us.
