1st day of school

Hunter started 1st grade last week and is so excited.  He wouldn't let me take too many pictures so I only have a few.

Look at that loaded backpack, he took all his supplies on the first day, he said I'm about to fall over.

Last year, I would walk him into class everyday and he didn't even mind giving me a kiss or hug but not this year, he told me on the very first day that he wanted daddy to take him, insert sniffing here!  And the next day, I was only allowed to drop him off at the doors and he could not kiss me anymore at school because his friends might see, more sniffing here.  My sweet, little, adorable baby is growing up and I DON'T LIKE IT!!!!  He comes home in the afternoons and tries to convince me or as he phrases it "cut him some slack" and let him do his homework later.  Where do they come up with this stuff???
But he does love his teacher (he better she lives down the street) and is doing very well on his work, so I really cannot complain. 

Hope everyone has a great school year!

My son, keep your father’s commandment, and forsake not your mother’s teaching.
Proverbs 6:20

Boys are so different than girls. My daughter loved posing for pictures. My son, now a big kindergartner, can't stand still for even a second.

Good luck to your little first-grader!

He's so cute! Totally has that look on his face like, "Yeah...I'm a 1st grader now!!! I'm cool!!!"

Love it! (Sneak those kisses in...he'll get over it!)

My Will started 1st Grade last week, too - complete with the bus! It was defnitely more emotional for me than him; I've never been weepy over ANY aspect of my kids growing up until this summer when he lost his first tooth and then last week when he walked into school w/o me anywhere near the building!
