and there they go...



All morning I heard the question "Mom, are you making lunch yet?!" It just didn't make sense to them that lunch wasn't until noontime, and not 10am. John and Mary were a bundle of nervous excitement, and couldn't wait to join the other big kids for their first official day of school. The morning flew by though (for me) and at 12:15 we hustled out the front door for a quick picture (to the tune of "C'mon Mom! Lets go!!") and the 2 block walk down to the kindergarden. They just seem too little to be this big already. Where does the time go!?

My little guy just left for kindergarten this morning. I shed more than a couple of tears as I drove away. School seems to change them, make them seem more grown up...that makes me a little sad! I hope your little ones had a great first day and can't wait to go back for more!

I have to ask--did Mary end up crying?
