First Day of First Grade

Before the alarm even went off this morning G was in our bedroom ready for his first day of first grade. He has grown so much since his first day of Kindergarten last year. We got all his things ready last night. Picked out his going back to school outfit (new green shirt that matches his new green superball shoes). Decided what he would want for breakfast. And got his backpack all packed with the papers we had to fill out. Lunch box was out and ready to be filled. We were ready. Our morning started out fairly easy.

We all took G to his classroom this morning and I really thought it would be a lot easier than dropping him off at Kindergarten. But my emotions got the best of me and I tried really hard to hold it all in until I walked out of the school. I did pretty good but cried the whole way home. I was thankful for my sunglasses again. :) I can't believe my little man is all grown up and in first grade. FIRST GRADE! He is so big now. And so excited. I hope and pray that he has an amazing year and that his love for learning and school continues to grow!

We are back to the ol' routine. Not sure I am quite ready, but he sure seems to be.
