First Grade Baby!!

Graham was more than excited for his first day of first grade! We went in the day before to meet his teacher, see where his room was and find his seat. Thankfully I already know his teacher from church so I was MUCH more at ease to send him on his merry way.
New shirt, new shoes, new backpack? Check, check and check!


See ya mom!

I was doing okay until I saw a friend of mine start to cry, then I started tearing up. The day seemed to drag on FOREVER and I must have looked at the clock 50 times. Poor Greg seemed lost without Graham and LuLu kept going to his room to look for him. Cute.

I was thrilled to see him come out of school this afternoon with a huge grin on his face.
The verdict?
"Mom, first grade is SO cool!"

Look'n good Greg! Can't believe he's already in 1st grade! Send Greg over here to help entertain Carsen! (We need to do another 'scheduled' playdate soon.)

I can guarantee you I will be the mom with the camera crying at the doors of the elementary school....I'm not looking forward to that day!

It is all over now!!! It will go so fast. Before you know it, Lulu will be in first grade. Jake starts 3rd in 1 month from today.

So sweet! I teared up too. I checked on Conner in the lunch room posing as a helpful teacher(my spying mom alias!). When he was the ONLY kid to remember his lunch number and punch it in correctly I teared up again. I looked at his teacher ( my friend) and said "I think it's time I leave!"

Hi Kristen! What a handsome little school boy you have there! So awesome that he had a great day, that does make it a little easier to leave them, huh?

You have such cute boys. Just reading everyone else's back to school posts puts a tear in my eye. At least you won't have to say goodbye to your baby girl for a couple of years though...

Holy crap! They've started school already? Ours don't start until Sept. 8th! Don't tell the kids! He sure does look cute, though! :)
