The first day...

It finally came,
after a long fun filled summer
The Boy's first day of Kindergarten

He worked hard preparing lunch for himself and his Daddy
As he was getting dressed the next morning, the Benjamin Button in him returned
He tried to coherse me into helping him get dressed.
Son, you're gonna be 5 years old, you're going into Kindergarten.
You need to dress yourself, I explained.
I know Mom, I'm not a man anymore he replied.
I was a bit perplexed.
No, son, you're not a man anymore!

He accomplished the task and we moved on to fixing his shark hair.
He LOVES his shark hair.

I was a bit worried it would be too much for a Kindergarten
but seeing that he was once a man that has grown into a boy
I figured it should be ok.
But by the time we picked him up from school
he had moved on to his hat.
He ripped off his uniform shirt and was ready to go home.
I couldn't believe this little man, ahem, I mean boy.

After school he got to pick a special treat.

When the girls started kindergarten,
I baked a school theme cake and it was ready and waiting for them when they got home.
So yes, I felt LAME this year.
but Daddy came through and found every school theme cookie they had in the store.
We ended the day with a trip to the skate park.
I created a monster taking this kid to the skate park.
Now every chance he gets, he begs to go.
How could I resist, my boy that was once a man, will soon be a real man.
I must relish in the moments.

Love the last shot!

He sounds hilarious...not a man anymore. And he is a cutie. Throw the mom guilt out over the cake, I am sure he loved the cookies!

He is adorable!

And don't feel lame, I'm sure the cake was great.

Follow along through the fun and agony as we try to figure out how to raise two completely opposite teenagers- Teen 1, the fiesty yet inquisitive one, Teen 2 quiet but wise-cracking and our ball full of energy known as The Boy. It aint always pretty, but we’ll sure try to make the best of it!
These are the stories of our lives…
