And now he's in kindergarten...




Wow, who is this Big Kid?  We got up this morning, full of excitement for the First Day of School.  The outfit was carefully chosen - a collared shirt (just like Daddy wears), skinny jeans and new Nikes - lunch was packed, breakfast was inhaled, teeth brushed and hair combed, then it was out the door almost twenty minutes early.  Hey, you can never be too early on the first day.  We found his place and he got right down to business decorating his name tag.  Parents began trickling out and I asked if he was ready for me to go.  "Can you stay for just one more minute, Mom?"  Sure, kid.  As many minutes as you need.
