1st Day of Kindergarten

Wow.  I can't believe it's here.  And yet I can!  It's seemed like forever getting here, and yet like yesterday that I was bringing him home.  I wasn't sure how I'd handle today.  Jump for joy or cry with nostalgia?  Turns out, neither really.  He did excellent, was so excited, and ran into the classroom after enduring a few pictures for me.  Then he came back out, gave me a big hug and went back in.  That's when the tears almost came :)

So what does a first day of school look like?  First it starts off with a big breakfast of waffles....that he was too nervous to finish :)

Then comes the LONG walk to school, with our neighbors and friends.  (long meaning 12 minutes!)

Can't forget the backpack

Waiting on the bench till we can go into the classroom...and realizing your mom wrote your name on your backpack

It's time!!  Dads are super helpful to have around on the first days...helps keep the jitters away

(This is where he ventured off, then came back and gave me a hug!)

After school we got a picture with who's sure to be the most favorite Kindergarten teacher ever!!
Mrs. Sexton is the best!

He survived and enjoyed it, but has HATED how much people keep asking him about school.  It's hilarious.  "Why does everyone keep asking me that?!?"

We sure love our kindergartner and we're so excited for what his future holds, and ours too!!

Quote of the Day

Kai was playing at the outlet mall in Breckenridge and a girl comes up and starts playing.  He's jumping across on the rocks and she says "Cool!  Can I do that?" 

Kai says "If you're awesome."

Tomorrows FHE lesson?  Humility.

New lens, new nephew

So I finally got my new lens tonight, and this little guy was the push I needed to get it now rather than later!

Our newest nephew, Tristan Thomas.  He's perfect and cute and so loved already!  Here's a few of my favorite pics we took tonight.  (I only had a few minutes, we'll get more later!)

Grandma and the grandkids (that live here anyway).  Tristan makes number 12 for her!
 Me goofing around with the new toy/lens :)  Love my little girl

We are excited for our new nephew, I'm excited for my new lens (Canon 50 mm f/1.4)!  And I have a few more pictures of Kennedi I hope to get up tomorrow...but may need to re shoot with my new lens ;)
