When Did This Happen?

I have a first grader. What??? Ahhh. I am pretty sure I was more nervous than he was. In fact, when I woke him up this morning he said, "Mom, I am more tired than excited."

We eventually got him jump started and all ready.

We packed up the fam, put his backpack on, grabbed my camera, took my token first day of school photo and headed out the door for our walk over.

Middle little man took off running while oldest little man sweetly offered to push tiniest little man.

As we walked over, he grew more excited with only a few complaints that his backpack was way too heavy...

"Hey Mom, can you carry it?"

"No bud it is your backpack."

"Well, can you carry me?"

"Haha--uh no"

"But I am your kid!" 

Don't worry he made it AND I didn't have to carry him.

This is how I left him. All smiles and probably thinking, "Mom I got this, you can leave now".

He is right, he's got this. I left with my other little men in tow.

We will miss him during the least for the first couple weeks right, haha.

No more than 15 minutes after getting home, Middle little man asked when his brother will be home. In 6 hours and 15 minutes...but who is counting?

After I wipe up my tears, I will have some craft stuff for you this week...including the FELT PUPPET tutorial and pattern.

I love that comment - well I am yours - they sure are aren't they.
I have to say 1st grade was much tougher on me too.

When the oldest goes off to school, it's so hard on the youngest one(s). I'm learning that this week too!

What a dapper fella you have there. Congrats Cole on your first day as a first grader, and have a ton of fun!

What! What a good looking first grader. I wish he and Lauren could be at the same school! I'm so anxious to send her off. I have about a week if I could just get baby here, so I can make sure I'm there for her first day of school. Fingers crossed.
