Another first day

And they are off...

and I survived.

Both Grace and Devin did great!

Grace cried softly when Braden, Kailey and Devin got on the bus... and the bus left without her.  She thought they left her behind.  Poor girl.

(She asked for her blanket and wiped the tears with the back of her hand).

But then HER bus came.  She hopped on. I buckled her in.  Gave her a kiss.  She waved to me.

and then she was on her way.

Came back smiling 2.5 hours later.

So did Devin.  He was BEAMING really.

Another school year.

and I have a fifth grader.

Second grader.


and a preschooler.

All in the same school.  The ONLY year this will happen in their lives.


  1. Love, Love Love the pictures. You survived...phew!! :o)

  2. oh my goodness, I thought I was going to cry with those pics of Grace crying after her siblings left on the bus. David did the same when we left Sam at school and David didn't get to stay. So heartbreaking, even if we know ''the next bus is coming''.

    I am so glad she did great and it seems you did too....good job!
