Now, let me start by saying that this year’s “first day of school experience” was dramatically different from last year.
I mean night and day, people!
As you can see, Eliza thinks she should go to school, too. Not yet, sweet girl!
Last year involved lots of crying…by him…and by me… *sigh*
…Not this year!
This year, this boy wants to go to school. He’s excited and he’s curious, not to mention the fact that he’s a complete goof-ball!
We took it easy this past summer and I think it was the best thing I could’ve ever done for him. I think he needed a “kid break” and if that entailed more time and snuggles with him, then I was game!
I just can’t believe we’re to this point. I can’t believe he’s already four. I can’t believe he’s actually excited and happy and willing to go to school or as Henry would say, “Ffffffooool.” It makes my heart happy. It makes my heart happy for Henry. 🙂
We already miss him, yet he’s only had a handful of school days…
*Shoes yet to be tied* Ha! 😉
…but he’s ready.
(Me? Not so much, but that’s another blog post. One which will involve a guaranteed ugly cry. #kiddingnotkidding)
Happy first Thursday of the month, you guys! You know what that means… It’s time for The Monthly Meet Up! Sara from Great Days of Hayes and I will be hosting The Monthly Meet Up the first Thursday of every month. Our party will last all month long, so feel free to keep linking up and be sure to stop…
Gosh, four? FOUR? How can that be? Oh my little Henry, Our lives were forever changed the day you were born. I can’t believe a year ago yesterday you were still two. Wow. That makes me realize how little you were then and how little you are now. You’ve brought us…
