Today was the first day of school for E-man. He was a little nervous and a little excited and a lot sleepy. Last year he was the new kid at a new school so there was a lot more nerves and tears than this time around. In fact I think this was the first "first day" I didn't shed a tear at all. I guess I'm finally accepting the fact that he is going to grow up no matter how much I fight it....na....it's still hard as heck! He has officially become the age where getting a genuine smile from him in a photo is a challenge. He either wants to give me a crazy eyed fake smile or pose like Rico Suave. It took more tries than I'd like to admit to get this shot and all in the midst of rushing to get to school on time. And since our front door photo on the first day tradition has remained in tact I went ahead and threw together this little diddy.
It's a mess but oh well. The point is...look how BIG he is!!! I mean seriously he's a giant now.
I am excited about his teacher this year. She's young and fun and kind of adorable.
E just keeps saying she's funny and since he loves to laugh I think it's a good match.
