Say it ain't so!!!!

I just can't wrap my mind around the fact that the tiny little red headed baby that I brought home from the hospital, what seems like yesterday, started KINDERGARTEN this week!
I am not ashamed to tell you that I cried. I cried because my baby was growing up. I cried because I am not going to see him near as much as I want to. I cried because he is going to become so much more independent and not need his mommy as much as I would like. I cried because that was the fastest five years of my life! And...I cried because I am sad.....sad that my baby isn't a baby anymore!

Here are a few pictures of his big first day.
Ready to go with his new Star Wars lunch box and backpack.
Is he not the cutest?
Posing with his little sister.
Arriving at school.
Being VERY silly on Mrs. Head's lap!

He had such a fabulous first day. When he got in the car I asked him what the "peak" of his day was and he said, "Getting my Awesome First Day sticker!". When I asked what the "pit" of the day was he thought for a minute then said, "Mom, I didn't have a pit...it was an awesome first day of Kindergarten!".

Tell me that it isn't possible! I have a hard time with my kids growing up too. Madelyn is going to be 1 year old this month. Time just does by so fast!!!

He is a handsome devil. That pic on his teacher's lap is priceless. Go do great things Big Red.
