1st Day of School

Until yesterday, I don't think I'd let everything about this school year sink in.  But on the way to meet their teacher's and drop off supplies, I began to realize that for the 1st time, someone else will be spending more waking hours with my children than I will.  I became a deer in headlights.  I even forgot to get pictures of them with their teachers!  But after lots of prayer and thought, I know they are ready.  Today I was calm, composed and so proud.

Madelyn's 1st day of Kindergarten!

She was so excited!  I think she's ready for this all day schedule and I think she will do well! 

David I could tell was a little nervous this morning.  There is a big change from Kindergarten to 1st Grade.  But he will settle in in a few days.

Walking to the bus stop hand in hand.

Off they go!

And then there was one....
Molly seemed to understand this morning that things were going to be different from now on.  She cried just a little when they left on the bus.  We had breakfast with Daniel at IHOP and spent the morning doing some shopping.  I think by this afternoon, she's decided this won't be so bad after all.
