First Day of school....

Well, I survived. I left Bishop at his new school & I didn't cry....that much:). I WOULDN'T have cried if Brad hadn't sent me a text saying, "He will be fine....I love you & can't believe our baby is growing up." Brad is not one that speaks in emotional terms very often so that made me cry. Bishop did GREAT! We walked in....he wasn't a bit nervous. We walked to the cafeteria...I showed him where he would go get his lunch & then where to sit. He kind of scared me when we were waiting in line to pay for his lunch.
He looked up & said, "Mom, is this the FIRST day of school?"

I said, "Yes, it is."

He replied, "Is it LONG time until the LAST day of school?"

A little nervous that he was already wishing for the last day, I said, "It is a long time until the last day...you will get to come here EVERYday!"

His response made me feel oodles better....he said, "YESSSSSSSS!!!" as only kids can:)

I waited with him until his teacher came & so far, I just love her. I can't say much for the principal....but his teacher seems very comfortable in her shoes. She is very sweet & made me feel really comfortable leaving him there. I wathced from a distance as they all walked to the classroom & stood at the door & watched him put away his backpack & sit down on the circle where his teacher told him too. I was quite proud (except the nose picking...we will have to discuss that:).

Here are a few pics from today....

Wow! What a big boy! Way to survive, Mommy! =) I'm proud of you...just reading the description of you watching him walk to his classroom almost made me cry.....

On another note, something about Shayden reminds me of Kimberly when she was that age...not sure what...it's just what I thought when I first looked at the pics. They are both as adorable as ever! =)

I am so proud of you..it is tough letting some stranger teach your child. I went and ate with Brady today and all he could tell me is that his new teachers calender was not as "cool" as his old teachers =) Wow what an observant kid I have. Bish is going to have such an awesome time at school..he is SO ready to not be with you all day =) just kidding I am proud of you! -- Shelly

I was on the other end of that today, I was the teacher taking all of Mommy's babies away. Pretty soon though, Cason will be right there with me, I cry now just because he is starting to LOOK grown up and not like a baby anymore. Mandy
