The School Year Begins!

How great is the look on Kaylen's face?

We had two very excited kids this morning! Kaylen lost it for a bit, suddenly scared and overwhelmed at her first full day away from home and a mom, but then she decided taking a buddy would make her feel better. She now has a stuffed turtle in her backpack, should the need for comfort arise during the day.

Kelton was all excited to see his friends that he's not seen all summer. He decided he did not need us to walk him to his class, but at least he was not too cool to give his moms kisses before heading on his way.

Kaylen was excited and put on a brave face as she posed for pictures, hung up her coat and backback and made herself at home in her Kindergarten classroom.

Wow. A big day. I can't wait to hear all about it!

I miss those days. Enjoy them!

I was always like Kelton, eager to get back and see my friends again. I loved summer, but after 6 week or so, I was bored. Living in a small town, some of my friends were in the neighborhood, too, but September was a welcome time for me!

Wow...I can't believe Kaylen is starting school. I remember the days when she was just a tiny baby. What a big girl she is now.

I love her facial expressions. You never have to worry what she is thinking.

You and Casey should be very proud!!
