First Day of Kindergarten
He started school this morning, and he seemed so very small
As I walked there beside him in the kindergarten hall
As he took his place beside the others in the class
I realized how all too soon, those first few years can pass
Remembering I saw him, as he first learned how to walk
The words that we alone made out, as he first began to talk
Oh how I long to stay with him and keep him by my hand
To lead him through those places that he just can't understand
But he must have his chance to live, to work his problems out
The privilege to grow and learn what life is all about
And I must share my little boy with friends and work and play
He's not a baby anymore, he's in kindergarten today
So yea I actually took the 1st day pics the evening BEFORE the first day but that's because tomorrow I'll be a complete mess, sobbing and whining to all of my family and friends about my baby growing up!
So we had a little rehearsal and took some super cute pics that make me cry EVERY time I look at them...
Let's hope I can get through tomorrow without completely losing my mind :-(
To all of you teachers out there, have a great 1st day changing the lives of our children! We more than appreciate your hard work and dedication, even if sometimes you feel UNDERappreciated.
And to all of my family and friends that have kiddos going back to school, may they have a happy 2012 school year!
