The day has now come and gone. I have worried, fretted, planned, denied, avoided, and shut out this day for a year now. The day my Firstborn starts school! Somehow, I survived. In fact, I've now survived and entire week! I'm already weary of it, so please don't remind me that this is only the first week of the next 20 years of my life. Mom of school-age kids. The title is growing on me. Slowly.
Here are a few pictures from Caleb's first day of Kindergarten. I love his school. I love his teacher. I love the administration. I love the location. And I LOVE the size. (It's tiny!)
Truth time: this picture is staged.. yeah, we went to school the night before for a dry run [also known as an unhurried photo op for a picture-obsessed mom who was afraid she'd be too much of a blithering mess on the actual first day of school]

A picture with mom (who was NOT crying)
Now here are a few pictures that we took during a little photo session the weekend before school started. I got a lot of pose inspiration from Pinterest (my new creativity obsession).
This one is my favorite because you can see mine and Carly's reflections in the door! And Caleb's giving a subtle "thumbs-up" too.
Happy School Year! We're adjusting, and marching forward in life. I only wish we could march a bit slower.
