First Day

Somewhere in between Maren starting full-day preschool at the Montessori school two weeks ago, Bryce and Annie starting fifth and fourth grades at their respective elementary schools, and me starting both teaching and going to class tomorrow, this beautiful thing happened...

It's not a great picture (I'm the "this is old hat" mom, on her third kid, who forgot the camera and shot a single photo with her phone this morning. There were many, many moms frenetically snapping pictures through their tears, but I was not among them). He's so much cuter than he looks here, through my smudged lens, but you can tell through the bad-quality photo that he's confident and ready to be here.

At least one of us feels that way. I sure do love this little guy, and I'm so glad that he's a kindergartener, running on the playground right alongside his friends, walking to and from school with his big brother.

That sweet little boy has come a long way!! So glad to hear that he's at a point that he can join in and run with the pack :) Happy First Day Mom!
