First Day at His New School

James started today at his new pre-school! I walked him up to the drop off spot and waited with him before the teachers came out for the kids. He had a lot to say--mainly wondering if his old friends were going to be at his new school. When they opened the doors he RAN inside and was all hugs and smiles for his new teacher--whom he hadn't even met yet!

I am glad to have him back in school, giving him an opportunity to socialize with other kids his age. Plus, I can start spending a little time with Ella and dig into work after she goes down for her nap.

I was a little teary-eyed as I left the school this morning, thinking about this. I can't even believe that nearly six months have passed since I took this photo!


Love you bud. Have fun!!!

It's amazing how much he's grown in just 6 months! Glad he's having fun and loving his new school. Speaking of socializing, we have a playdate with another homeschooling family in 2 hours, and I haven't showered yet...gotta run.

I'm so glad James is feeling better, BTW!

Ahhhh....you just made me tear up thinking about Matty's start in school. He's a ninth grader this year. I only have 3.5 years left now and then he's off to college. Oh my gosh...
