first day.

first day. by kristin~mainemomma
first day., a photo by kristin~mainemomma on Flickr.

today he is officially a second grader.
i know this is true, but it never fails to surprise me. didn't summer just start? (sigh) he sat eating his cereal, dressed for his first day, he looked up at me and says, "my heart is beating so fast momma!" (little did he know so was mine.)
so much anticipation and nerves on that first day. my hope is he comes home all smiles and FULL of stories to share.
2:40 cannot come soon enough today for this momma.

happy first day kellen. so proud of the boy you are. xo, mom

I can only imagine what this feels like...it's one more small fledge that will eventually make up the big fledge. Right?

Beautiful image.

They never grow up when you shoot them from this perspective. Hope he had an awesome day . . . with that backpack, how could it be any less?

I just saw an image on Pinterest of a clothesline, zipped over - just for a sec!- and have spent 30 minutes peeking at your fantastic blog! Looove it!
The baby of my brood started 1st grade and it remains a surprise - each and every morning that she bops into the school!
