Aug. 26, 2011 - My 1st baby started kindergarten... tear...tear....

I know - I totally stink at writing personal posts anymore but today is a HUGE day in our house! My 1st baby, Jace started kindergarten! Okay so I guess that officially makes him a big boy now. I so didn't think I was going to be one of those momma's who cries when their children go to school for the first time, but I WAS WAY WRONG! He got on that bus and the tears were flowing!!

We got up and got ready. I got him breakfast and he was too excited to eat. He just wanted to get dressed and go. We were planning on taking him to school on the first day, but he was ready so early and kept talking about the bus. So we decided to let him get on it. AHHHHHH talk about emotional! Luckily I held in the tears until after he got on, but that was not easy for me! My baby all grown up and going to school on the bus. At some point in your life you just have to trust other people with your kids and the school system and today was that day!

Knowing that he was so excited made it a "tiny bit easier" not much though!! It's going to be a long day for this momma and I will be sooooo happy to see him return on that bus this afternoon!

So this will make you all DIE LAUGHING I'm sure! So I've seen other parents do a 1st day of school sign. It's a great idea - you write your child's name, grade and what day they started on it. So I just had to make one of these...

Yep. I was so proud of myself for making this sign and taking these pictures so we will remember Jace's 1st day of kindergarten forever. So proud until I uploaded the pictures to the computer and realized that instead of putting Aug. 26, 2011 - I put Aug. 26, 2001!!! Oh my goodness, can you say EPIC FAIL! Yep mommy = total idiot today! HA HA. Oh the memories we will have considering I graduated in 1999 and my kindergartner started his 1st day in 2001. LOL - Oh my, my nerves and excitement must have gotten the best of me today! We will have to do a "redo" later!

Maybe I should be the one going to kindergarten ;) and daddy too - he didn't notice either! HA!

Well I hope you ALL have a fabulous day - I'm going to try to, but it won't be fabulous until my little guy returns safely home this afternoon!!!
