1st Day of 1st Grade!!

A Day of Firsts....the first day of first grade came EARLY this morning! Ethan got up a bit reluctantly, but after a breakfast of waffles he was raring to go! I took him to school and walked him inside (of COURSE I did) and *thought* I would be taking him to his class. But apparently the school is trying a new system to "sort" the kids by teacher and how they were getting home, so it was a huge cattle call in the gym. I hated leaving him there on the bleachers, looking a bit unsure of himself. But he insisted he was fine and gave me the "getoutofherebefore
Idieofembarrassmentbecause
youkissedmeonemoretimemom" look. (Are any of you familiar with that look? ;)) Anyhow. He's there...all day....and it's very quiet here somehow even with the other two running around. And of course there's pictures. What kind of mom would I be if I didn't take pics? Hugs to all you moms with 1st day's today!

What a cutie pie! I don't even want to think about taking Caylin to school on the first day! I'll cry my eyes out, I'm sure, but I'll also be sure to take some pictures to scrapbook! ;)

Oh Kelly my friend!! Sending you big hugs!!!

Kailyn starts Gr.1 the beginning of Sept. too and I'm wondering how I handle her being gone all day as well.
My middle one is going to start pre-school for 2 afternoons a week so that will be another huge change.
Love your pictures!

He looks ready to go Mommy. Nice work keeping the camera focused despite the tears and the shaking that must come from that first day and giant leap. :)
