This little man just melts my heart! He has been so lonely since Ellery started school. This morning he started to cry when Ellery had to leave.....he just does not understand why he can't go to school like his big sister. A few days ago he had his 2 year check-up(yes, I am quite late) and had to have several shots. He was brave through the first one, but then was crying through the final two. When we left, he looked at me with those big blue eyes and said, "Mama, dat man huwt me." I could have melted into a puddle right there. Hang in there little man, you will start pre-school in 2 weeks.

Standing with her buddy, Jackson.

Well, it has happened.....the former Kindergarten teacher is now the parent of a Kindergartener! How did this happen? Ellery walked into our room at 6:30 this morning, fully dressed, teeth brushed, shoes on, and bow in hair, ready for her first day. She didn't flinch and did not seem even remotely nervous. She was ready. Her teacher is "the" teacher, and she has 3 friends from our neighborhood in her class. Darin and I both shed some tears, and Dane still seems confused at to why he isn't staying at her school, too. I can't wait for 2:20 to arrive and find out all about her very important, first day of "real " school. Why do they have to grow up???
