First Day of School

And…it’s done! I’m happy to report that the first day of school was a rousing success for all. Boys didn’t cry, Mommy didn’t cry (too much), and we had 6 solid hours of a quiet house and no staggered pickup/dropoff duties! ย After spending much of last school year burning up the road between D’s kindergarten and A’s preschool, having them both in the same school is wonderful!

I wanted a picture for this blog, but I purposely don’t use pictures that show their faces (for the same reason I don’t name them on the site — I admit, I might be overly cautious when it comes to my kids and online privacy). ย So, I couldn’t use our normal “First Day of School” picture. ย Then I got the idea of capturing them from the back…and I love this picture.

Hope everyone has a great school year!

    Actually, I love shots of my kids from behind, because that’s what I see of them the most. Somebody once told me that we moms spend nine months bringing our kids into the world, and the rest of our lives sending them out into it.

    Today was a big step for all of you – congratulations.

      Thanks, Cathy! That’s a great saying, and so true. I was a little sad when A didn’t even look back this morning, just marched right into school like he’d been there forever…but I was more proud. ๐Ÿ™‚

    Hi Katala97,

    Being enjoying “letterpressing” with you… ๐Ÿ™‚
    I googled you and found your site.
    Father of 2 boys as well, the elder one will start first grade next Thursday, let’s see how it goes! ๐Ÿ˜›
    I found nice you didn’t put face shots of them. I don’t do it for my boys either. In fact, I’m not on the web myself… ๐Ÿ˜›

    Good luck for game and life. It’s being nice to play with you… ๐Ÿ˜‰
