Big girls don't cry...

... until their little one starts school :(

Yesterday my little Jack Jack embarked on a huge adventure - his first day of Kindergarten!! He had been waking up every. single. morning. asking if it was a school day for the last 2 weeks. To say he was excited is a huge understatement. So yesterday morning came and I could finally say to him "yes, today is your first day of school" and he was ready to go in a flash.

What about momma you ask? Yeah, momma wasn't as excited. Don't mind the fact that I had been crying to myself for a few days prior to him starting school. I made a smart move and took the day off of work because, let's face it, no one wants to bring their sick selves in to a snotty nosed, puffy eyed receptionist. Seriously. This was a really big moment for me even more so because on Brodie's first day of kindergarten, I was MIA due to hiss little sister being born. Didn't really have a choice on that one and I was always so bummed that I wasn't able to be there for his big day.

So Jackson and Brodie were up and at them in a heartbeat and ready for the bus approximately 30 minutes before it was time leaving them plenty of time to pick on each other and ride their scooters.

And then before we knew it, the bus was here. And he was gone.

And momma lost it. So Adie and I went in and cuddled for a little while and during that time she promised me that she wouldn't grow up and she would always be my baby. It's in writing, folks. She can't go back on it!

Jackson buddy, I pray that you always love school this much and that you put 100% into everything you do. I can't wait to see the friendships that develop over the years and I already love hearing all of your cool stories. Kindergarten is only the beginning of a life full of learning!

P.S. I can't guarantee that I won't be crying on the first day of school every year... :/

I can't believe how big our children are getting :(

It does get easier! But when I picked Gavin up on his last day of Kindergarden, I sobbed. It had just went by in the blink of an eye, and now he is in 2nd grade!!!

Looking so forward to seeing you :)
