grade 1

You've all heard the story (or lived it).....the sappy Mom that cries while dropping off their child for Grade 1 (or Kindergarten, or Preschool).  I knew it would be me.  I knew, because when I'd think about having my boy away full days, 5 days a week from me, or the 4 hours I'd have with him before bed time each day, I'd start to feel weepy.  This morning I was feeling very confident, distracted by the Mom's I knew, by meeting the teacher.  But once I started to drive......the waterworks started.

How could you not miss this face?
ps....this is him just before the start of Kindergarten last year:

What a change from one year to another. I need to go and search out our older pictures. It gets better as the year continues.

It gets better... :)

I, too, love that last shot of him. He looks confident and you know he'll do just fine!

Oh I feel ya, mama! My Evie starts first grade next Tuesday and I. am. dreading. it. I know she'll do great, but what am I going to do without her all day??

These pictures are so wonderful. I adore the one with his eyes closed. He is such a cutie. :-)

Sending hugs your way. We all need them, don't we?
