What a journey

It has been a busy summer and a busy start of the school year.  I have so many great pictures to share and met so many great families this summer.  

My first baby started Kindergarten last week.  It was a hard and painful journey for my son and I.  On the first day, he resisted (more like screamed and wouldn’t let go of me) and I had to flee the room, while his teacher and principal held him back.  The wonderful principal called us a few hours later and told us he was doing just fine.  The whole rest of the week, he said, “I don’t want to go to Kindergarten,” had tantrums, challenged every possible instruction we asked of him, and had nightmares every night.  

Today was the first morning he did not complain about going to school.  Yesterday, he nodded yes (with a huge smile), when I asked him if he had fun at school.  My son is happy, and back to his ol’ self again!  I am one happy mama now!

My daughter had her first day of preschool this week.  She is total opposite of my son.  She went into her classroom without looking back.

And of course, I can’t leave my third one out.  He just follows me around as I play chauffeur, but of course he had to wear a little backpack just like big brother and sister.

All three - I love this picture because it just really expresses each of my child’s personalities!
