We're Back to School

First Day of Kindergarten:

This was torture for this postpartum mom. When did my baby girl get big enough to go to school? She was so proud of herself and so excited about her special "first ever day of school."

First Day of First Grade:

My "Little Miss Independent" was so ready to get back to her beloved school. She practically pushed me out the door when it was time to say goodbye to her at school.

I love how she is a friend to everyone. Her friends from Kindergarten were so excited to see her this morning.

Walking to the Bus Stop:

They forgot Dad and I were following behind them. They were lost in conversation.

Holding Hands...

This always melts my heart.

Waiting for the Bus With Special Friends:

Hey...Don't Forget About Me!

I went to school today, too. Even if I slept through the big event. : )

Hope you enjoy some special one on one time with Benjamin. So cute to see the girls walking hand in hand to the bus. It is wonderful that they have each other.

What a special day! It was at our house too! Yes enjoy your time with baby Ben! Lots of cuddles and hugs!

I love the look on Carissa's face in the picture of her standing with "special freinds".  She looks really enthusiastic lol.  Ben is such a doll.  Looks more like Pat everyday I think!!

Look at those precious faces! The photo of the four of them should be on a back to school Hallmark card!

And congrats on the arrival of your baby boy Ben!

I would have loved to hear that conversation as they were walking off to school.
