Well, my little guy is now in SCHOOL. Don’t ask me how this happened so fast. We have been doing this school thing for about a little over a week now, and I will say that it gets easier every day. We are able to drop him off in the morning carpool and he walks himself to class, he does great at lunch, he’s super happy when we pick him up in carpool in the afternoons, his appetite has doubled (yay!), and he’s one tired boy in the evenings. I know that school is going to be great for him and he’s going to learn so much more than “book” stuff. I’m excited to see how he grows this year!
Here are some pictures of his first day. He looks SO SMALL when he’s lined up with all the other kids. I feel like I’m sending my toddler away on his own and that’s hard.. but I’m getting better! I’ve only cried one morning after drop off – I consider that a success!
Not only has Tristan started school … but Shelby AND Kate have, too!
Shelby started his first day of college toward his PGM degree on Monday. It’s really crazy to think we are BACK at college.. getting a 2nd degree. We have dreamed about this and planned for this for a LONG time, and now the time has finally come! It almost seems surreal! I have no doubt that THIS is exactly where God wants him! [ I feel like I need to make a disclaimer - Shelby was stung by a bee the weekend before school started, but his face was STILL swollen Monday morning ... poor guy!]
Kate started preschool on Tuesday. This sweet little nugget.. I love her so much. She’s the smartest 2 year old I know. I can’t wait to see how much she grows and learns at school! I’m so thankful that we have the ability to send her somewhere great for preschool. I’m feeling so incredibly blessed lately! She absolutely LOVES school.. her face lights up whenever you talk about going to school. She told me she’s a big girl now and she goes to a big girl school. ;)
I’ve really enjoyed seeing all the “back to school” photos on facebook. So many proud parents and excited kids. I’m happy to be a part of the club this year!
