Sentimental Journey...Part One

Now that we are totally school pros, I am now fully ready and excited to share our family pictures from the first day of school!
Here we are getting ready to head out the door.
Try getting a school picture of K.J. without Olivia.
Nearly impossible! It just can't be done!
Well, it can be done...
you just have to straight arm the little sister!
*Straight arm with love, mind you*
Isn't he a handsome boy?

I love how sweet and nervous he looks! This is right after he took his seat.

I was so brave. You wouldn't even believe it!

I left him in the classroom with a hug and a kiss, walked out of the room,

took a few steps down the hall, and... stalled.

Wait. They want me to leave the school? What?

But I did it.

Olivia felt about as happy about it as I did!

Grace went to pre-school yesterday. I was totally cool. Then I got home, and Henry went down for his nap. And I was alone. And I felt it.

Good job for keeping it together. I cried with Kaylee. Now that I am more used to kids being gone I was ok with Toby....sometimes it is still hard. I miss them a LOT when they are gone. Cute pics!! Kindergarten RULES!!!

He is a dolly. I love that little Olivia was sad about leaving big brother, too. Good stuff.
