our first grader

Monday, August 26, 2013

 today is a classic first day of school, rainy and gloomy (just as I always remembered as a kid). we just got back from california yesterday but we are all ready up and bright this morning for first day of school. 

 aston  will be in first grade and we are excited for him. we met his new teacher (who's wonderful!) and classmates last week and it was nice meeting parents as well! 

we were the first one there today in the classroom and we get to snap a pic of him and his teacher!  
never fails. i cry every year when I drop him off on the first day of school (notice how small my eyes are?). i was a total mess while he's all embarassed. year after year you get to realize that he's all grown up. a bit more responsible. slightly reliable. is that really our baby boy? 

do you moms feel the same way?

It looks like a good first day experience for Aston…finally into the numbered grades! I had to miss the first day of school drop off yesterday and it just killed me. It really does sometimes feel like our children don’t grow up just a little bit at a time, but more like leaps and bounds that leave me wondering where all those moments went.
