The big week

I've been having a really hard time with Charlie starting kindergarten.  More than I thought I would. 

I know he'll be totally fine.  He loved preschool, enjoys Primary at church, has a great attention span, is super smart....all the things that make for an excellent kindergartener...so what is it that's making me all crazy in the head about it??!

I finally figured it out....

I'm going to miss the heck out of him.

I waited a long time for this little sweetheart, and he's my best little buddy.  Charlie is also such a good helper to me, and a fantastic brother to Walker and Crew, so what am I supposed to do without him??!

I'm also borderline slash extremely jealous of the teacher who gets to spend so many hours with him every day.  

^after The Buddy Holly musical a few weeks ago

We went in yesterday for his first day of assessment. I let Charlie choose where we went for lunch beforehand (pizza, of course) and on the way to the school, he said, "I'M GOING TO KINDERGARTEN!!!!!!"

I was almost in full panic attack mode before dropping him off, but my friend Nikki was dropping her son off at the same time. It was perfect timing, because just like that, a tender mercy distracted me from losing my mind.

He's going to love it!  And I'm going to count down the minutes every day until I can see him again. And maybe I can sweep off my front porch in the mean time....(those top pictures yikes.) :)

Also...this baby...  !!

My mom used to bawl every school year on the first day of school...I always thought she was crazy but I already feel so emotional about my puppy getting bigger I can't imagine how emotional life as a mom will/would make me!

How is it that they're always so much more ready than we are?! We know the saying, "they grow up so fast" but there is nothing like experiencing it firsthand. It's necessary, exciting, yet hard!
