kindergarten bound

Today is my baby's first day of kindergarten! He was such a big boy... no fear, all excitement! Mommy has been anxious since last night. :) He did great settling into his room, jumping up in joy when he saw one of his buddies walk through the door. He yelled, "Ethan is in my class!" and gave me a high-five.

As I write this, he is probably making his way to the cafeteria to eat his lunch. Oh, how I wish I could see that. I can't wait to hear all about it when we pick him up!

Another attempt at getting everyone to look in the same direction at the same time with a somewhat pleasant look on their faces. No such luck. I apologize for the panty shot. However, it does remind me that Miss Elle started wearing big girl panties yesterday and has done a wonderful job! "Mommy, I gotta go potty!" is music to my ears.

Look at how much they have grown from Hayes' first day last year!

14 tellin' me what I want to hear!:

AWW!! I didn't know he was going to be in kindergarten!! oh, I do miss the days of kindergarten! I'm sure he is going to do great and have a lot of fun!

I love the 2 pics of the first day of this year and last. I can't believe how much bigger they look.

Hope the day went well!

It's truly mind blowing how much they have changed in one year's time.

OK... MAKE ME TEAR UP! THEY LOOK SO GROWN UP FROM A YEAR AGO...

I AM SO PROUD OF HAYES... HE IS SO SMART AND SUCH A BIG BOY NOW! I AM AFRAID THAT HE WILL BE BORED IN SCHOOL ;O)! I KNOW THAT ALL THE GIRLS ARE GOING TO WANT HIM AS THEIR BOYFRIEND CAUSE HE IS SOOOOO CUTE!

AND I CAN'T FORGET TO SAY "WAY TO GO ELLIE!" I NEED TO COME THROUGH WITH SOME PRETTY PANTIES NOW LIKE I PROMISED HER :O)! WE WILL HAVE TO GO ON A SHOPPING SPREE TOGETHER TO GET SOME FANCY ONES.

I CAN'T FORGET MY HAPPY JACK TOO FOR ALWAYS BEING SO GOOD TO LOOK AT THE CAMERA AND SMILE AT YOU... HE IS A CUTIE TOO..

BEEN THINKING OF YOU TODAY AND WONDERING HOW IT WENT FOR YOU TOO!

LOVE YOU ALL MORE!
MOM

Wow, they have really grown up! Kudos to you for getting them ready in time to document the moment (mental note!)

I thought they were bloomers since they matched, lol... good luck potty training! I bought a potty chair last night. Alex sat on it for about 30 seconds then tried to take it apart. Guess we're not quite there yet... :p

I about croaked when I saw last years first day picture!!!! I don't know what it is about grade school little boys...they just get to me. Like I said on facebook, when I took Kyle to Kindergarten that first day I had to turn around and walk fast because of my tears.....kinda like when he graduated from med school.
