I didn't cry.

Even when this happened right in front of me!

School siblings

My babies are both going to school.

Their classrooms are in the same hallway,

they see each other at recess and they are out there navigating their world without me.

For a few hours at least.

I am left with feelings of pride, some fear, MUCH love,

and much to my surprise,

very little sadness.


And really, it's just too hard to be sad about something that she is so excited about!

Yay School!!


P.S. I went for a massage this morning. NOT sad about being able to do that!


and he's off...

To Grade One that is.

A full day,

a very full backpack,

a mama's heart full of pride and love for her little man,

and about 25 retakes just to get one decent "Back to school" photo!

Seriously folks, six year olds and cameras = opportunity for all the faces!




This one is the keeper!

And yes, he has decided to be an illustrator. The kid has some mad drawing skillz folks!

I hope the first day of school (or non-school) was awesome for you and yours too!
