First Grade!!

Yesterday was Joshua's first day of school!
He is officially a first grader, and so far he is loving it!
He seems to really like his teacher, and he was thrilled to have his little kindergarten buddy in his class again, as well as lots of other friends and familiar faces.
It is amazing how much easier it was to leave him this time around; knowing he knows the people I was leaving him with made such a difference.
I was still sad to let him go, and we still miss having him home during the day.
But...I didn't cry this year like I thought I would!! {at least not too much} :)
And I have been reminded of how fast the days really do pass, and before we know it he is home with us again.
YAY! We love 3:00!

Here are a few pictures of the big day:

What a handsome boy he is!

And one of Grace, too! The cute girl...
she wouldn't let me do her hair. She is really into having it down lately. Drives me semi-crazy, but she still looks adorable and she is happy, so I can deal with being semi-crazy. :)
And I think that is it!
Hope the back to school transition is going smoothly for you, too! :)
...I can say that this year year I'll have to take them both to school, and I'm going to be a wreck!
Consider yourselves warned! :)

  1. They are so cute! I'm glad that Joshua is doing so well in first grade. Yep, they're going to be little heartbreakers as they get older.
