First Day of School

It seems impossible for me to believe, but my oldest child started school today. He started the day with a declaration: “Mama, I am not excited about starting kindergarten”, but he did eat his breakfast, got dressed without much fuss and walked with us to the bus stop at the end of the street. He did great, and I managed to hide most of the tears that kept leaking out.

I especially love the second photo, taken as we were waiting for the bus. He said his backpack was “pulling him down”, so he figured he’d get comfortable on the sidewalk. Typical Josh.

I was happy to discover the little backpack I made, although small, does fit everything he needs for school, and he seemed proud to wear it.


  1. awe, he's a cutie! so glad his first day went well.

  2. Wow! taking the school bus as well! What a brave little guy!

  3. Congrats on your big boy starting school! He's so cute. Love the picture of him lying on the sidewalk!
