Today was my nephew's first day of first grade. He was nervous because none of the kids from his kindergarten class are in his new class. I am sure he will be fine though...he makes friends easily.
He is too cute.
That's a great picture! School doesn't start here until the end of the month.
I always LOVED the first day of school. New clothes, new supplies, new teachers...so fun! Now, I'm dreading it when mine enters school for the first time. I think I'll be the mom crying outside the door.
Look forward to more pics of your darlin's firsts. Our younger son had his first day of college today with a swearing in as a midshipman for the Navy on an ROTC scholarship. His Dad promised pictures that I'll see Tues night. Tough not to have room in a station wagon for the 3 of us to travel together to Fl. He took a laptop that converts his handwritten notes to typed words, a dorm fridge, microwave & cell phone. Such technology!! No room for his bike, too many hills & humidity anyway. He has new bedding, pillows, & wardrobe as ROTC has a dress code at FAMU Tallahassee. Freshman orientation is Aug 21, but he has a week of mini-boot camp first. He'll be a minority student (Caucausian) attending a highly respected & ranked historically black college, no roommate to start. David takes after his mother, took a large & medium box of his 3 favorite authors, Robert Jordan, George RR Martin & Terry Goodkind.Can't believe how neat & clean his bedroom is! I have a book by Karen Kingsbury titled "Let Me Hold You Longer" about trying to recognize "last moments" like last time he needs me for a ride from here to there, last time to wear a jersey for your high school team. The back cover says "a heartwarming reminder of the precious process of growing up and the joys of watching it happen."
He's precious. I hope his first day was fun!
Last night he said, "I just can't wait until tomorrow!" What a blessing to have a child love school so much. Makes life SO much easier.My third was my only boy, and the teacher had to peel him from my leg. He cried every morning for a week. My youngest daughter was my toe-dip into empty nest syndrome. (I started writing when she went to first grade.) but she ran right into the class and didn't look back once. I was the one who cried.So, Lou, you didn't get to go along to take your son to college? You poor baby! Maybe it will be easier for you staying home. That's a good story, and I'm sticking with it for you. I can still remember the melancholy feeling after leaving my oldest daughter at college away from home. It was a worse trauma than leaving my last child at kindergarden.
He is a cutie and it is wonderful that he can not wait to go back! Thanks for sharing!
Lou, I may have to get that book. I don't think she will have a problem leaving me. She'll go right in and make oodles of friends. Mommy, will be devastated.
